Shades of Yellow

Today sees the start of a new challenge at Path of Positivity. Continuing with our year of colours this month it is the turn of Yellow.


Materials used:
Imagine That Digistamp – Leesa’s Swing
Card Making Magic The Christina Collection – Complete Card & Box Die Set 5×7″
Britannia Dies – Medium Multiflower Rose
Britannia Dies – Leaf Strip
Pink Frog – Ice Crystal Paper 170gsm
circle dies
Core’dinations Card – February Gold
patterned paper from stash
X-Press It card
white flat backed pearls
Copic pens

The card base is made up using the Card Making Magic set and the circle die. The image is printed on X-Press It card, coloured with Copics and fussy cut. The flowers and leaves are cut from Ice Crystal paper and coloured with Copics on both sides. The pearls are coloured with Copics then used to make up the flowers. Leesa is only glued at the branch so that she hangs free on her swing. It gives a little movement in the card. I am not sure why but the photo makes her look lopsided on the actual card she is sitting straight!

The colour yellow is such a bright cheerful colour and this time of the year seems to shine with yellow crocus and daffodils not to mention all the fluffy chicks on Easter cards. It’s a Spring colour, one of rebirth after the dull, dreery winter. It is a happy colour!

I hope that you will join us on the Path of Positivity this month. We have two excellent sponsors, Imagine That Digistamp and Limited Runs both offering generous prizes.

Our challenge is Anything Goes with the optional theme of Shades of Yellow. If you do follow the optional theme, be sure to add FT after your name so that we include you in the draw for the prize for Most Inspirational. We’d also love to find out how this month’s colour makes you feel, if you’d like to share that with us. What kinds of feelings does the colour YELLOW evoke in you? You can write a sentence or two in the body of your post, write a sentence at the bottom of your post next to the link up for this challenge, or simply leave a comment on this post if you’d like.

We also have a call out for guest design team members. If you think this is something you might like to  have a go at please put GDT after you name in the link up or leave a comment on this post or leave a comment on the Path of Positivity Blog post then Lisa or a member of the DT will get back to you with more information. There is no experience necessary and you get to work with some fantastic images. If you have been thinking of having a go now is your chance.

For more inspiration from my team mates take a look at the Path of Positivity Challenge Blog where you will also find details of the prizes on offer and instructions on how to enter.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
