Color Collage


I took the easy way out of coloring this wonderful collage image from Firecracker Designs, by using the Watercolor Distress Technique. The color combination is from this weeks Play Date Cafe Challenge (Red, Turquoise, Green, Black and White).  To add color to the BG panel, I used the Antiqued Slimmers Technique, on Watercolor paper.  Once the card stock was dry, I embossed the panel using the Cuttlebug Stars Folder.

Stamps - Courtesy of Firecracker Designs
Ink - Distress Ink Fire Brick Red, Peeled Paint, Broken China, Black Archival
Card Stock - White, Black, Watercolor
Other - Glimmer Mist, Spritz Bottle, Craft Sheet, Big Shot, Cuttlebug Stars Folder

Hi Lisa,

My computer froze up for a minute. I don't know if my message will show.

I love the way you used the colors from the PDCC with this dramatic image. It will look great with the other DT projects. Yours always look beautiful, and I can pick yours out without looking at the name! :)

Thanks for sharing!

He IS Able,
Traci S.
