Technique Blog Hop - Colour Your World

Welcome to the February Technique Blog Hop. 

The title of this month's bog hop is "Colour Your World" - the technique is colouring. 

You should have arrived here from Melissa Robinson’s blog

Colouring is not a strength of mine but I do the best I can... and I enjoy it. 

I chose to use the Shared Happiness stamp set but in a different way than  the stamp is intended. There is a centre section designed to place a sentiment but I used the floral part and stamped around the border of my card instead. The images were coloured using the Tri-Blend markers. Some Stickles were added to the centres of the pink flowers and I coloured some Clear Sparkles to place in the centre of the purple flowers. I cut to rectangles using the Stitched Rectangle Thin Cuts and created a small shaker that also contains the sentiment.

I hope you enjoyed my project.
