Today at COPIC CREATIONS we are featuring an often neglected Copic color ~ YELLOW!!    There certainly are enough Y and YR Copic color choices, yet it seems to be one of the least used colors.   Poor YELLOW.

 Well, we hope to change your feelings about YELLOW today!   Below you’ll find some amazing creations from the Design Team, showcasing their favorite YELLOW Copic combinations.  Yes, you will be amazed at their work!
We are also welcoming back one of our favorite sponsors ~ Paper Makeup Stampsowned by our own awesome DT member  Katie Cotton!    


Before I go any further I have to say I found this challenge very difficult - I don't  do yellow - I don't like yellow, I don't have anything yellow in the house, I don't have yellow flowers, I don't even do margarine because it's yellow (butter's OK it's a softer lemon colour).
I think this has something to do with having migraines as a teenager, migraine and yellow just don't go together, although that's probably just me!!! 

I really had to dig deep to find some yellow papers, they were all hidden at the back/bottom of a drawer - haven't the foggiest idea who they are by.
The flowers and leaves are cut with a Crealie's dies and the pearls and ribbon are from stash.
I love this image Katie's and  shall definitely be doing her (Moody for Art) again and I quite fancy her in blue, or even a lilac colour. We hope you’ll take some time to check out Katie's  store - you won’t be disappointed!    All the YELLOW sample cards from DT feature an image from Paper Makeup Stamps .

Love your card Heather but I'm with you on the yellow ... not a colour I like at all! And certainly not a colour I gravitate to to use in my crafting! That said, you did a marvellous job with it and I like the golden yellow you've used rather than a lemony one!
Hugs, Danielle

I like the olive with your straw coloured yellow - it really tones down the brightness. Love the stamp & your shading on those skirt pleats.
