Color Your World Challenge

It has been so much fun doing all of the challenges that Flourishes is having to celebrate their sixth birthday.  But, whew, it sure has been hard to keep up.  Today's Create With Me Monday challenge is one that had me pushing my limits.  Heather's tutorial was great; easy to follow and her photos helped me get an idea of what she was trying to convey.  I've not done much in the way of coloring backgrounds.  In fact, this is the very first time I have attempted to do it.  I think I need to do a lot of practicing.

To see Heather's beautiful card and her step-by-step tutorial, click HERE.  You still have time to join in on the challenge.

Stamp Sets:  Swan Lake and Garden Fairies (Flourishes); Inks:  Tuxedo Black (Memento), Faded Jeans and Dusty Concord (Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Ranger), Always Artichoke (Stampin' Up!), Copic Marker YR02; Card Stock:  Perfect Plum and River Rock (Stampin' Up!), Classic White (Flourishes), Secret Garden (Graphic 45); Accessories & Tools:  Twine

In all honesty, I'm not sure what look I was going for.  :-)  As I said, I'll just have to keep on practicing.  I really think it will be fun to create backgrounds to add a different look to some of my cards.

Until next time . . . happy creating!


  1. This is beautiful, Marsha! Those papers are so pretty with your sponged background. :)
