Yellow

The theme this week at Less Is More is Yellow. It isn't a colour I'd normally think of using, so to make a card with yellow as the predominant colour was a bit outside my comfort zone. But it's supposed to be a challenge, isn't it?! So here's my card.

Very simple, just sponged Versamagic ink in two shades of yellow down one side of a Nestie shape, overstamped it with an Inkylicious stamp in a darker shade of yellow (which shows up better IRL than it does in the photo) and a sentiment (Katzelcraft), with a ribbon at the side to finish it off. Not entirely sure that I like it, but at least the colour has brightened up a miserable, wet day!

This looks a lot better when you click on the image to enlarge it. I am a libra so I like things balanced, and I want the ribbon on the other side, but apart from that it is a bright and classy card, and I like it. Kate x

It may be simple Lynne, but extremely elegant.

Much better when I enlarged the image - this is classy!!
I too entered the challenge and like you, yellow is not one if my 'go-to' colour.
All the best is the challenge.

Isn't yellow the colour of that thing that's supposed to be shining on us now it's May, Lynne!!!!
I love what you've done with the shading, it's very effective.
Hope you have a lovely weekend.

A really lovely card Lynne - I like the way you've sponged one side and then overstamped. Really classy!
