OLW35 - Yellow

One Layer Wednesday time!!  This week's challenge (OLW35) is to make a one-layer card that has yellow!!  I wanted a pretty pale yellow to be my background for stamping but this is a one layer challenge so no cheating adding more paper!
To achieve that I decided to paint my background with a loose square of yellow/white Claudine Hellmuth paint - that paint is so easy to use and so, so very creamy.  So luscious that if you didn't know any better you might try to lick it.  In fact, I did know better but was still tempted to lick it!!
The Try a New Technique Challenge (TLC306) on SCS this week is to paint with Stickles.  That was just what my flower needed for a touch of bling.  The stamped images and twinkle stickers come from A Muse.  Of course, with a layered stamp it is important to use a stamp positioner to get things lined up "just right".
Yellow is just the thing to cheer things up on a cold winter day - Well, yellow with a nice, warm latte and a Double-stuffed Oreo (just trying to keep things real).

How pretty! I've never used that kind of paint before. You card looks really smooth & flat, does the paint make the cardstock wrinkle?
