If anyone remembers
my 'Purple Phase' series last year, you might remember the nugget of advice I kept repeating to those frightened of using purple in their crafting: combine it with kraft card and the problem's solved! Because ...
Kraft is the denim of the crafting world. It goes with everything.
[Just don't get those two mixed up. While denim on a card would probably work quite nicely ... kraft trousers? Not so much.] Anyhoooo ...
... for those who are feeling a bit yellow-bellied about using yellow here's a very simple idea involving kraft as a base:
So, the yellow is restrained by the neutral shades behind it, meanwhile the kraft is brightened up with some wonky, layered circle flowers handcut from patterned papers. And it's a simple, speedy card too [the brief for the set of cards this was part of was that they had to be quick to make, hence the hadcutting and minimal background.]
This week I've been pinning other people's 'cardmaking with yellow' inspiration to the Month of Sunrays Pinterest board, so have a browse around there for more ideas on incorporating papery sunshine into your cards.
Maybe you'll find time over the weekend to wear, create with or photograph yellow so, if you do remember to let me know. You can either ...
I'll be back tomorrow with another outfit post. And yes ... there will be yellow involved. You didn't think I was going to give up that easily did you?
