Putting on the Color!!

Here it is, our final Blog Hop for VC Rocks for 2014 ... it is so hard to believe we have less than 2 weeks left - this summer has flown by.

Our theme this month is Color, Color, Color ... we are to use color in any way we want.  So I pulled out my drawer of pieces of the Bright collection and went to town!  The stamp set is Starburst Sayings and I used the Starburst Framelits and a couple round punches. For the big circle, I first inked the stamp with Versamark then Tempting Turquoise ink so I could emboss it with clear embossing powder.  I cut a bunch of strips of 5 different colors, adhered them to the white c/s then added a couple banners cut with the Banner Framelits.    It was fun and outside my comfort zone, but sometimes we need to do that, don't we!


Well, I am in Pennsylvania this weekend for the wedding reception for my grandson and his new bride and catching up on more hugs and kisses from all the PA grandchildren.  Talk about fun!  

Have a great weekend ... God Bless, Shirley

Great way to use up some of the scrap strips to collect over time, some of my fave colors as well. TFS!
