Live in the Moment

Crafter's Companion released two great new sets designed by Sheena Douglass this week!   I used the Silhouette Grasses to make my card today.  I think the sentiment is SO gorgeous, and a great thing to be reminded of.  I paired with with the lovely flowers....and just in case you thought it wasn't possible to color on silhouette image, I decided to show you that you can!

I often hear people say they can't color, or they are afraid to.  I promise - anyone can color!  Just start small, like I did on this card.  I stamped my image on Ultra Smooth White card stock and added Distress Ink around the edges.  I then used my Spectrum Noir markers to outline around the edges of the words (CR4), the stems (DG2), and to color right on top of the flowers (GG1). When I was all finished, I added some Yellow Stickles to the tips of the flowers, for sparkle.  I also added three small dots of Cotton Candy Stickles in the left corner of the image.

See, anyone can color - even on solid images!  Give it a try today :) And as a reminder - there is still time to play along in this month's Crafter's Companion USA Challenge!  The challenge this month is to create a card or project with any Crafter's Companion stamp - and you could win a $30 gift certificate to the store!  You should definitely play along!!
