Simply yellow

This is a one layer card for Clean & simple 189 sketch:


I've used mustard seed DI direct to the card to created the square panel - I was reminded of this technique by Joanne's splendid article in Craft Stamper for June. I then stamped with memento with an unknown stamp that I've had for years and still love - so simple, but I think effective. The butterfly is part of a Laura Ashley stamp and the sentiment from a Molly Bloom set.

The yellow is for Less is more week 66 colour challenge, also for Crafty boots: yellow.

I drew the freehand lines and dots border with Staedtler fineline pens - I'm no good at freehand, but I tried!


As this is a one layer card it's also for St Luke's one layer month, also for Top tip Tuesday 76: clean and simple.
