Let's Ink It Up Challenge

The challenge on Let's Ink It Up is "Anything goes - with a twist". So we can create anything as long as it has yellow on it somewhere.  I'm not a yellow "lover" but it's great to add as a highlight or accent, and I've made this ATC.

I stamped my background using the resist technique and Peeled Paint and Broken China Distress Inks, but I stamped my sun first and masked it.  Then I just added some Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink to the sun, added my German Scrap Moon and some words from an old book, outlined with inktense pencils.
I inked the edges with Faded Jeans Distress Ink.
My little moon came from Pollock's Toy Shop in Covent Garden in London.  I bought some fabulous massive wings at the same time but I'm waiting for the right project to use those on.
Thanks for looking X

I agree, yellow isn't my fave colour either but you've worked wonders with it. Has a lovely magical night time feel to it. Very Midsummer Nights Dream. Pxx
