OLW35: Yellow

This was a stretch for me to pull out the yellow ink at this time of year but Susan’s One Layer Wednesday Challenge at Simplicity this week is to use yellow.    I used my favourite SU yellow, Summer Sun, along with Pumpkin Pie and Ruby Red to sponge inside my squares. Then I removed the mask before stamping the plants in black.  Although it was hard to create such a colour scheme while it is snowing outside I am happy with the results.  Thanks for the challenge, Susan.

Check out the other cards featuring yellow; there is plenty of inspiration to be found.  I was definitely inspired to create mine after seeing Kathy’s beautiful card.


Stamps:  Pocket Silhouettes
Inks: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Ruby Red, Summer Sun
Cardstock: Flourishes Classic White
