Cutting Cafe-You Color My World


So happy to see you again!  This week over at The Cutting Cafe we are all about the color!  Regina has this great printable stamp set file available with a few pdf's that include the background I colored below and another in a couple different sizes along with some great sentiments and shapes as well!  It's called You Color My World... and it's pretty cool!


I chose to color this 5x5 square with a rainbow of copics and each swirl is colored with an ombre effect fading from dark to light.  I didn't worry about blending them too much because I knew I'd be splattering some rubbing alcohol on it later to get that splattered almost watercolory effect.  Before I did the alcohol splatters, I colored in between with a dark and a light shade of gray.  Then I splattered on my rubbing alcohol with a paintbrush and I love the way it turned out.


After all of that coloring, I didn't want to cover the whole thing up but knew I'd need some kind of divider between that bold background and my images if I wanted them to stand out so I used a large rectangle of vellum cut with the medium CDD Crazy Stitched Circles die and then cut a smaller rectangle in white to really let Sassy owl and her gang pop without covering up too much of my background.  The star shape that came colored in the Color My World set was perfect to really make Sassy Owl stand out from the rest.  These owls are from the awesome From Owl Of Us Stamp set available at the sister site, The Cutting Cafe Shop.


A bit of crinkly seam binding, a flower that I had sitting in my little cup of extras (which you can hear more about if you come back for my Lessology project tomorrow), some sequins and one of the awesome sentiments from the Color My World printable set.

Thanks so much for coming back today and be sure to head on back tomorrow!
