The Secret to Not Coloring

Today I'll show you The Secret to Not Coloring.  Often we want to create a card with great colored images but we don't have the time or energy to find our coloring tools and decide on which colors to use and what coordinates well with our here's the secret...don't color....use your designer series paper and it takes care of all those issues in an instant---

*saves you time--don't have to get out your coloring tools

*the DSP lists the colors that are in the DSP so you can choose the cardstock base, and

*the colors are already coordinated for you!

Doesn't get much better than that!

So where's the proof...

AppleSo here's the proof--cute card, right? It was super quick..I selected my designer paper--today I used the Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 pack--great designs in this pack that cover an entire year of needs. I then decided I wanted the apple to pop so used Very Vanilla cardstock as the base. No coloring but the card has plenty of color and pizzazz. Then just to add some interest...I used Artistry Blooms adhesive-backed sequins to add some extra coordinating color (without me doing the coloring)

I'll give you the step by step directions to create this card followed by the supply list.
