From Black and White to Color MIM # 260

I loved the MIM and Danielle's video  HERE.  
I wasn't trying to be too fancy, but I think I did make it harder for myself by trying to mask some of the is what I had pictured in my know how that goes!
It took me a few tries to get it right, after I did this one, I did one other, more like the one Danielle did in her video and just stamped away...oh and then I forgot what I was doing and colored in the WHOLE thing!  Well, shoot, forget about the black and white!!
so this is the THIRD card made for this challenge..LOL...this time I stamped, then cut out and then only colored in the pieces on the inside of the cute...well, that was much easier!

This is what I used for the first card and the one I am entering:
Autumn Pumpkins
Bold Blossoms (leaves)
PPP Sand sequins
Maya Arts Twine
 My second card was stamped with this set:
Bold Blossoms
Give Thanks (sentiment)
Lil' Inkers Stitched Rectangle die
Nuvo Crystal Drops
Thanks for stopping by friends!!
Hope you have a great week!
Kiddos are back in school, sports has started, will be going to grandaughters Volleyball match tonight, she is wearing the Libero's shirt!!  

Heart Hugs, friends!

I did the same thing!!!! Yay it's not just me! I love the cards you made. I like the way you kept the pumpkin card simple with a bit of black and white. This was fun and you nailed it!

Oh Colleen, your pumpkins are lovely, all colored or not! And love the 2n (or 3rd) card too. Beautiful with the pop of red!

Betty said...

Birgit said...

Colleen, I love the little scene you created with the pumpkins! Both cards are fabulous but I'm totally loving the pumpkins!!

I lot the pumpkin card best too. I think it's because I'm in the fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving mood! I'm excited to see what the grands do in volleyball this year and hope they will come back here. I love these cards and I'm off to see the video.

Beautiful, beautiful cards Colleen! I'm totally in LOVE with your first pumpkin card...SOOOO pretty and just lovely coloring too! Had to laugh about your 2nd card as that sounds totally like something I would do! Glad you persevered though cause your 3rd card is just lovely the bright colors against the black and white! Well done on both my friend!! :0)

And you did masking besides, Colleen? No wonder your pumpkins are so striking. Your other card is beautiful with the pop of red and yellow.
