Less Is More ,,,, Yellow :-)

Hi all :-) I am making it a point to try not to miss the Less Is More Challenges ,, I really enjoy joining in :-)

This week Chrissie and Mandi are asking us for CAS + Yellow. I know some people aren’t keen on yellow but I love it ,, a sign of spring and daffodils ,,, lovely :-)

I bought this lovely Cheery Lynn Butterfly die on my recent trip to the UK whilst on a shopping trip with Mandy and this is its first outing :-) It comes in 2 pieces, a solid base and the filigree wings. I sprayed the solid part with yellow copics Y11, Y15, Y21 using my copic air brush. I then coloured the antennae on the fancy part with light grey and the body with Y23, then smothered with glue and sprinkled with White Glitter ,,, I loves glitter ,,,, :-)

I used a plain white base card and cut a square in the middle with a nestie, then I inked up a Hero Arts Flourish stamp with a Snow Cap dabber and stamped the front ,,, it leaves a lovely delicate design ,, very pretty :-) I added some acetate behind the window and stuck a sheet yellow DP from a Bo Bunny Ambrosia pack on the inside. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and I added some gems for even more sparkle :-)

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)
