Y is for...

More than halfway through the alphabet challenge at The Craft Barn blog now - and the latest letter is Y, with the added condition that the project must have some yellow on it. After a lot of thinking,  I remembered that I had this stamp of a cat playing with a ball of wool, so I've chosen "Yarn" as my word.


It's a straightforward ATC - the cat and ball of yarn was stamped in Cocoa Brown Memento ink, coloured with Promarkers in shades of yellow and gold, then masked off the image (Quickie Glue is great to use on the back of the mask to add repositionable glue at the fiddly bits) and blended yellow inks (Adirondack yellow and butterscotch) over the background. 

I wonder what letter will be next?  We'll just have to wait and see!

A very cute ATC and isn't it great when you get to dig around and use a stamp you've had for a while - very satisfying especially when it takes care of the letter Y so brilliantly.

Hi Keren, your little kitty is so cute, and don't the colours all work beautifully together? I never imagined a yellow monochrome could look so effective. MMx

Great word choice! I thought Y was difficult as there isn't that many words to chose from. Your ATC is very cute but so vibrant too. Claire x
