Mellow Yellow


Today's card is brought to you by the colour Yellow.  Or more precisely, the colours in this challenge at Just Add Ink:


Then we have the joint challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch and Fusion:

And bringing up the rear we have The Paper Players' 200th challenge, where we can choose to revisit one of the challenges selected by the Design Team.  I chose Jaydee's clean and simple watercolouring:


I smooched some Distress Inks (Mustard Seed, Iced Spruce) onto an embossing folder (Craft Concepts, Grunge Stripe) and took a print, sloshed some Iced Spruce around the edges of the base card, grabbed the good old credit card and added some distressed lines.  Stitched a piece of cotton tape to the panel, stamped a butterfly (Uniko Studio) onto spare card and sloshed some colour on, then fussy cut and stuck it onto the tape.  And added a sentiment (Hero Arts CL646 Happy Birthday).

I'm in a Yellow phase at the moment, after having done Pink to death.  More yellow tomorrow.  It must be all the sunshine we're having :)

  2. SHUT the door, this is so WONDERFUL, I a, partial to Yellow. When I was a child we lived on a farm and out in our pastures fast a small herd of cows, there were fields FULL of buttercups..faroff in the distance where the pasture turned into woods, deer would venture down..I always thought it was magical. This card, reminds me of then. Thanks for that great memory.

    This is the second time I have seen the Uniko butterfly used taking my breath away...though honestly Shirley, most of your cards always have an effect on me!!!!

    Thanks for joining us at FUSION/CAS(E) this sketch!!!!!
