You Color My World


This was an idea I am happy came together. Hit a few glitches, one of course the dreaded stamp drop so the sentiment had to go where there were some random black lines. After that the colouring was easy and enjoyable. Of course it was done with Copics and then a wee bit of 


Wink of Stella that shows up here lightly. Then the hardest bit using my rectangle dies so they could frame the picture. I didnt want to cut off too much of my colouring and it wasn't going too well.



I wasted a bit of coloured cardstock trying to work out what to do and in the end used these that the largest die just does the stitches outline without cutting and also attached the next size down roughly lined up so it cut a frame. After the second time it worked. Then I attached the coloured image to a piece of white card stock to the attach to the back of the frame. 

Finished off with the cute little cockatoo and a sentiment that I cut in half then stamped on the word bubble to cover up that miss stamp.

Very happy with this.


Challenges :













Even though it says on the front 'You colour my World' its actually a
Birthday card for a girlfriend to give her husband.
