CTMH Technique Blog Hop - Color Your World

It's time to "Color Your World" with this month's Technique Blog Hop. We know coloring is all the rage right now so we are using Close To My Heart products to focus on "color". Participants can interpret that how they like. I cannot wait to see what they have designed.

If you are coming from Tonya's Blog, you are on the right track. If you were to get lost a long the way, you can find a complete list of participants at the bottom of this post.

I love our Picture My Life Clear Watercolor Cards and decided to use this one, with a heart, on my card. My husband and I are celebrating 18 years of marriage on the 20th of this month so I decided to make it to suit that occasion.
Using our Watercolor Paints and a Paintbrush, I first wet the card and then applied the two different shades of paint. I dried it using our Craft Heater and then used a tissue, and a bit of water, to wipe away the color on the heart design. The heart design is embossed which created a resist image to allow for this technique. Cool, huh?

I used these cardstock colors: Gypsy, Thistle, Slate and Black. Some Silver Shimmer Trim was added as were a few black sparkles to finish it off.

Thank you so much for stopping by and now head on over to Darlys' Blog to see how she interpreted the color theme. 

Happy hoppin'!
