Silhouettes Require No Coloring!
Add Color...but still no coloring!

Hello Color, without any color!

We've  been having some "no color" fun recently and today we're continuing with Hello Color, Without Any Color!

Remember this new stamp  set  --it's called Hello Color and is an awesome project if you love coloring and have some spare time. However, it is also an awesome design if you don't have a lot of time and if you are not fond of coloring.... CaptureToday's project shows you how to use the large beautiful design in your card to add some really lovely interest and keep your stamping and card prep time to a minimum...check this out.

Black & whitnKeeping the color (or non-color) scheme to black and white you get this really great contrast and some really intricate design with no coloring. Now if you are just itching to color, then you grab your watercolor pencils, markers, blender pens, and acqua painters and go nuts!

I've fallen in love with our new butterfly thinlets...they are in the Move Me set and are really easy to use. The paper bits nearly fall out when the cutting is completed!
