Mellow Yellow

How about some bright yellow sunshine?   Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge  this week is Mellow Yellow!  I was excited to play with yellows. 



I think I have been overdosing on the Stampers Anonymous bird.  He has been out on my desk quite a bit lately.

I decided to take an old wood plaque (green) and paint it to a lovely yellow color.  I painted it white with gesso.

I added a layer of Embossing Paste through the honeycomb stencil.  Then layers of yellow mists with a few coats of a darker yellow mist to provide shading.

I stamped the rulers using a gray ink and distressed the honey combs with a touch of brown dye ink.


Then a nest of ribbon died yellow, ruler stamped on ribbon, and raffia.  I added a few eggs in the nest.


I first finished my plaque and walked away to think about what I could add and I decided a branch full of flowers.


Outside I went to get a branch to add to the background.  I misted up tissue paper and cut layers of flowers and put them together on the branches.

  6. Suzanne...your yellow piece is gorgeous. That bird...that bird...I LOVE that bird! I love how you've done the twig coming out from underneath the "nest" and the sweet birdie. I love your sentiment and I love your background; how you've mixed text, texture and patterns. Beautiful!
