Less Is More Challenge






Hi Stamping friends. The divas have challenged us with using yellow...never a favorite of mine. As a matter of fact, does
anyone really like yellow all by itself? I shall have to check a few posts. Several songs came to my mind for some reason...the Beatles' Yellow Submarine, The Yellow Rose of Texas, Yellow Polka Dot Bikini. Gosh, I don't know why, but I had no bikini stamp, no sub image, and only a huge rose, so I settled with the common baby chicks. Aren't they adorable? I  found them at a convention I went to several months ago. They are a DeNami Design image and I have lots of ideas in my head to use them. They're colored with copics and/or SU markers in "yellows".   The photo was taken with my Iphone and I added some filters in an attempt to make the white be really white...don't know as I've achieved that or not. After I uploaded this, I added some cute cloud dies overhead .The puddle of water from Stamp A Mania fits underneath them perfectly.
Although I'm a bit ambivalent about yellow, I have some other card ideas floating around my head, but that's because of all the inspiration from Mandi and Chrissie.

Hope your weekend is off and running, but not so much that you can't do a little stamping.

Blessings,
Erica

Hi Erica! It seems that yellow is not a favorite color for most of us playing along! I know I struggled trying to come up with something. Your little chicks are just precious! I love that puddle...and I bet the clouds really added a great touch! Great card this week...even using yellow! LOL!
