Yellow and Green

One of my reasons for starting this blog was so I could submit cards I have made to the Less is More weekly challenge. I like their philosophy of encouraging white space and uncluttered cards (though I'm not a stranger to clutter).

I have decided to give myself a personal challenge of entering a card each week for the next four weeks (at least) so I can up my blogging, and cardmaking, skills.

This is my Yellow and Green card. Not my first attempt, but the one I'm happiest with

I had some craft card blanks and have been trying to find ideas for using them, so decided that whatever I came up with would go on craft card.

I've had this little duck stamp for a while and since ducks are yellow I decided to focus on him. I chalked him with yellows and there is green on the dandilion stalk, and lightly around him. I put a little glitter on the dandilion but it doesn't show on the photo.

He is on a blue card back that seemed a little boring so I versamarked it with an ornate leafy stamp, and mounted it to the craft card. Now I'm thnking that a green card base instead of blue might be nice too - but I guess that is one of the fun things about cards - so many possibilities.

I didn't add a sentiment, because I think he has the versatility to be a card for a number of purposes so I'll keep him for the right occasion.


  1. That is a really cute duck! Your card is fab, Dianne, and good luck with the challenge you have set yourself. I too, started my blog to 'encourage' me to enter challenges and to improve my blogging. I think you are off to a wonderful start! hugs, Annzzzzzz;0

  2. He probably have been even more CAS if you had this dear little chap directly on a white card blank without the additional colours...but he is a cutie!
    Thanks so much

  3. Love the clean and simple lines of this card Dianne, it looks fab. I look forward to seeing the weekly challenge you have set yourself and if my blog has encouraged you at all then I am truly flattered. I love it when people get inspired to do their own thing. Go get 'em girl! Lesley x
