Collage Coloring

 The Technique Junkies has a bimonthly newsletter- and we learn new techniques to try. This month we learned a way to colorize college images- Circle Colored College.  Here is my try:

 The best part- you can use digital images too. I used SU Cameo Coral cardstock and a R22 Copic to color my seam binding to match. The berries are colored with R22 and R24 and I added Crystal Effects over that.
The B165 corner die is by Cheery Lynn Designs. 
 The Image is a digital image from Create with TLC.  

 If  you use digital images and have not been to Create with TLC, stop over there and get on her blog list- Paulette is very generous and has the greatest sentiments around!  And, one more member till she celebrates for 1900 followers!

Challenges:
Outlawz- Paper A La Mode- Inspired by Nature
The Poodles Parlour- Use a digital image
The Stamp Man- Use summer colors
CRAFT Challenge- Summer
Oldie but Goodie- used circle stamps that have not been used in a few years!

Thanks for stopping by!

I love this idea! I am always at a loss as to what to do with some of the collage images so I may have to try this technique. Beautiful!!

What a fun technique - sort of like spotlighting. Love the colors you chose and that double bow is gorgeous.

Saw this card in the SCS gallery and was fascinated with the technique and what an eye catching card you made! I think I need to check out this Technique Junkies Technique.
