Blues and greens and browns oh my…

Challenge10_offweek_close_Teresa

A lot of times I’ll take a stack of images and color away for a few days, or a week, and then later go back and turn them into cards. I love to color, love to test out different techniques, and watch a line drawing come to life. Sometimes when I go back to actually use the image I draw a blank… that’s what happened with this cute image from Digi Design House’s Americana Stamps.

It just wasn’t going with any of the papers that I grabbed to use, and wasn’t fitting into my little plan. I gave up and pulled out the CS… love how these match by the way. Then I started cutting, didn’t like that so I started punching, that wouldn’t cut it so started tearing… still wanted something so I made notches… then twine… then buttons, ah a work in progress. I really like how it turned out, it was a strange route to the end, but that’s how things go sometimes, never know what route you’re going to take to get somewhere.

Don’t forget there is one more week in the current challenge Summer! So head over to the DDH Blog and join in the fun!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by, please let me know what you think!
