Lots of Yellow

The One Layer Wednesday challenge this week over at Simplicity is to use yellow.  Well, I used lots of yellow!


After several false starts and stamping images in Daffodil Delight that seemed to get lost on the card, I brought out the Daffodil cardstock.

The butterfly needed something to light on so I embossed some flowers.

Pearls really looked nice on the center of the flowers but I want to make cards that can go through the mail and some of the pearls would have needed to be where the stamp goes.  So I used the White Signo Gel Pen on the centers then put a drop of Crystal Effects over the ink.  It gives the sheen of a pearl without the bump. Well, there is a little bump but not much.

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Nature Walk
Ink:  VersaMark
Paper:  Daffodil Delight
Accessories:  Big Shot, Elegant Bouquet EF, Black EP, Black Gingham Ribbon, White Signo Gel Pen, Crystal Effects

Enjoy,
Bonnie

Hi Bonnie--I made it back from Prague in one piece! Love your card, and especially the way you made the flower centers with the Crystal Effects. Why didn't I think of that!

Lovely card! That is a good idea about replacing the pearls that way. Your butterfly is so pretty with the Daffodil Delight.

I love this card, however, is there a reason why my embossed flowers always come out in reverse to yours?? (Which affects the butterfly)... I'm a beginner stamper (!) so maybe there's a basic trick?? Many thanks...Elise
