I stamped this Crafty Secrets image with Memento brown ink on watercolor paper, and I wasn’t sure if I would be able to actually watercolor it without the ink bleeding….but it did pretty well:
I loosely colored the image with the challenge colors, then cut it out with the Labels Framelit, matting it with another label diecut in RHR in the same size, just cutting it apart and adhering it to the top & bottom of the image. I added some stamped elements along the edges as well as a real 1917 postmark from an envelope in my stash:
I dyed some seam binding with Riding Hood Red ink and dried it in the microwave for my luxurious bow and added a little piece of lace from my stash. The sentiment on the inside imitates that sweet vintage feel from the challenge photo:
And the sketch is from a la Card Monkey this week:
which I just LOVE! I will definitely be using this one again! I hope you’ll play along with the ColourQ challenge colors---they are just beautiful and I can’t wait to see what you create! You can see all the details as well as the other designers’ creations on the ColourQ blog! And by the way, I have had a few requests for a tutorial on my little lip balm holder shown here, so I will be working on that in the next couple days!
My little reader!
