Make it Work, Colorful Seasons

Make it Work, Colorful Seasons

I’m excited to share my “make it work”, Colorful Seasons Monday design.  After everyone cut out the leaves from Monday’s post “Colorful Seasons, Autumn Leaves” card in last month’s class the watercolor paper negatives were left.  I knew I wanted to make something with them, so I had everyone put them aside for me.  Usually it takes me awhile to get around the using leftovers, but not this time.

Well, this time I sat down and put this together.  I did need to trim the watercolor paper down slightly to get a nice looking piece.  Then I was contemplating how I could add a bit of sparkle.  I had my a-ha moment and tried flicking my Wink of Stella brush onto a piece of Basic Black.  Amazing!  After popping the leaf sheet with Dimensionals onto the Basic Black the Wink of Stella flecks make the leaf cutouts pop with sparkle.  Yay!

I placed the layers onto the Crushed Curry base then stamped the sentiment onto a strip of watercolor paper with Memento Black Ink.  It’s great how many sentiments are included with the Colorful Seasons stamp set.  Finally, I popped the sentiment with Dimensionals as well.  It needed “more height”.  Lol!

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have a great “make it work” Monday.
