Yellow is probably the colour I use least on my cards but I rather like the brightness of it with the aqua and brown and I like challenging myself to use different colour combos sometimes. I love kites on cards and I love spots and stripes for everything. I am always drawn to them in clothes shops. I think it may be the symmetry that I like.
Image - Penny Black (another of my fave PB images)
Medium - Copics
Papers - Echo Park Bundle of Joy dots and stripes
Sentiment - LOTV
Die - Memory box kites
