I have really started to love coloring especially when you don’t have to color all of it! Coloring flowers to highlight the pattern like I did in this sample is just as powerful! It makes the flowers pop and the background of black and white is fabulous too! Less coloring means more time to make multiples!!! 🙂
I started with a piece of Melon Mambo for my card base. Then I cut each piece of the Inside the Lines Sale-A-Bration Designer Paper into 1-1/2″ x 1-1/2″ squares. I punched opposite corners with the Corner Rounder Punch for some added texture. Next, I colored the flowers to highlight the pattern with the Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen. You really don’t have to use the Blender Pens. If you like the pencil look or if you want the image to stay bold and dark (if you press hard), just color and stop there! Once all of the pieces were colored, I layered the squares onto a piece of Old Olive cardstock measuring 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″. Next, I added this piece to a piece of Whisper White (3-3/4″ x 5″) with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the greeting at the bottom in Melon Mambo Ink from the Designer Tee Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set. Finally, this was then layered onto the Melon Mambo card base and I finished it off with some Brights Enamel Shapes (melon mambo and old olive).
