Less is More Yellow Daisies


Sorry for the miserable photo, my efforts at capturing yellow Brilliance pearlescent ink stamped onto coated cardstock have not been a total success!  The daisy background stamp is an old Elusive Images rubber design and the text was a gift from a crafty friend a few years back.  I've inked the edges with the same ink then fixed the daisy panel straight down onto a C6 card base created from some thick coated card that's no good for stamping/colouring, fixed the text with 3d foam pads then finished off with the sickly yellow organza ribbon and a daisy button from my stash.  It's my creation for this week's Less Is More colour challenge - in case you didn't guess!  I can't say that yellow is my favourite colour, but with lots of white I think this works ok.  And I also found another blog challenge I can enter with my card - new to me so thank you to Angelique for pointing me in their direction, the Mi CAS es su CAS theme is for nature, so hope they like my daisies.

Enjoy your weekend, the sun is shining here in Cornwall so I am trying to keep busy and not dwell on what's happening in my life just at the moment.

  3. The yellow doesn't show up in the photo very well as you say but I can still see that his makes a really pretty and very effective card and I bet it looks beautiful IRL. Hugs, Lesley

  20. These daisies have a home with me too but it's a long time since they saw ink. Yellow Brilliance isn't an easy one at all - love the bow with the white daisy on it.
    Take care
