Welcome to our Create with Connie and Mary Saturday blog hop!
Our theme this week features an image to color, because it’s National Coloring Day!
I love to color! When my girls were young, this was a favorite past time for us. We we went out to eat, we always had coloring books along with the good crayons and markers! Both are artists now!
I couldn’t help but pull out this Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper and my Blends and get to work –
I seriously could have colored all the pages!
By changing the color of the single Blends marker, you can create a totally different look in a card!
I am working on fall themed cards, so I started with Halloween –
This card just uses a Dark Pumpkin Pie Blends, that’s all! The shading came strictly from the paper!
For the sentiment, I used the Tags Tags Tags bundle, which is a stamp set and framelits.
I changes it up a bit for a fall card –
This card used the Light Blackberry Bliss Blends. Although, the card stock is Rich Razzleberry. This colors match a little better to me.
Stamp set for the fall card is the Gather Together, punched with a circle punch and backed with the Layering Circles Dies.
In the past, I created a beautiful Christmas version using this same technique. It’s just too pretty not to color it!
