So I am trying what I think was the technique, but I'm not sure. :) Either way, I like how the finished product turned out so here it goes on my blog.
My Aunt Julie, Aunt Jerrie, and my momma came for a visit to play in my new crafty space, and this was one of the projects we all did together. Aunt Julie had brought some pieces of from an adult coloring book and we each took a sheet that we liked.
We used different sizes of circles to die cut three circular areas out of the coloring sheet.
We colored the images within the die cut circles and then put them back in their rightful positions.
So in the end, you have areas of popped color. I think it creates such a visually striking effect and it's totally a technique I plan to try again in the future. Since I didn't want to cover up the pretty background, I added a simple vellum overlay of a sentiment.
I'm going to link this card up to:
