Yellow is sunshine!

I love yellow. I can't wear it, but I love to look at it. The SCS challenge today was to create a card using lots of yellow. Beings I didn't have any good yellow cs to work with, I used my Spellbinders Peony dies to cut 7 white pieces out and then colored them with 3 different shades of yellow Copic markers. I then wet them and wadded them up, carefully opened them, stacked them and added a brad through the center of all the layes. I then formed them up around the center again. The bg paper is from the Paper Studio and really does have yellow in it too, but you can't see much of it now. lol The sentiment is stamped onto white cs using Shabby Shutters distress ink and then I added the yellow into the closed part of the letters. I tied a double ribbon using this wonderful yellow gingham ribbon from Mark's Finest Papers and added an extra tail. That's it. I hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by!

What a gorgeous flower. That flower is pretty enough to wear even though yellow isn't one of my best colors. I will definitely be trying this technique.
