Creative Coloring

Hi!

Monday is winding down and I finally have a card to share for our day 7 lesson from earlier today in the CAS 3 class. It is definitely more difficult to do my homework when I'm not in my craft room all day. But I must say it was so nice to work among all the beautiful, spring flowers today, especially since our weather has once again turned quite cold. We're even suppose to get some snow tomorrow! What?!! I wish I had Mother Nature's phone number. I'd call her up and give her a piece of my mind!

Okay, enough about our crappy weather and onto my card.

Kristina Werner shared a neat technique with really pretty results for our "Creative Coloring" lesson today. She created her card using a large die-cut sentiment. I decided to use a die-cut image instead.


I die-cut the Clustered Leaves Die from the white cardstock and then adhered it onto a vellum panel, which I had colored by swiping it with different colors of Copic Markers.

The Copics on vellum give such a soft look and I thought the Simon Says Stamp Sentiment from their Inside and Out Sayings set was perfect.

Thanks for stopping by! ♥

This is such a gorgeous card, Barb! Great design and I love the beautiful results of this technique! Ugh to even more snow - I'm sure you've had enough of it at this stage. Hopefully the weather will improve there very soon:)

A perfect interpretation, especially in light of your "crappy weather"! The sentiment, too - I can notice little changes, even though it doesn't look like spring is coming, it is - hang in there!
