Make It Monday #260 Challenge

Long time no post. I knew that once I went back to work my blog would be the first thing to be neglected. I think I am going to have to start scheduling stuff ahead, which I hate to do. However, if I don't, then it seems like this place just echoes.

I have not been crafting much BUT while I am relaxing with my family in front of the television after a long day, I have been doing some coloring. I decided that this weeks PaperTrey Ink "Make It Monday #236" challenge "From Black and White to Color" would be perfect for me to join in this week. 


I started off by stamping and masking images from PaperTrey Ink's "Doodlie-Do" set with Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink onto a white piece of card stock measuring 4" by 5 1/4." I then cut apart the left edge of the with the most stamping.


Next I used my Copic markers to color in the flowers on the largest piece of card stock. I accented the dots on some of the flowers with clear Wink of Stella to give them some shine. I also used a white gel pen on the dots on the leaves.


I mounted the panels onto a Kraft, A2, top folding card, popping the colored panel up with foam adhesive. I added a sentiment from the same stamp set which had been stamped with Versamark onto a blue card stock and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.


I completed the card by adhering blue sequins randomly over the card front.

I apologize for these photos. I love this cake plate BUT it makes the lighting all wonky in my light box. I should have retaken the photos but I was a bit lazy this morning. I would rather craft then edit photos!

I thank you for stopping by today. Have a fabulous Saturday!!
