Colour Me... Guest Designer!


I have the honour and pleasure of being guest designer at Colour Me...! for the month of June, woohoo!  This week's colour challenge is monochromatic, using Coastal Cabana and neutrals.


I used Evergreen Bough Distress Ink to create a stencil print background, and stamped the male image (Dylusions) onto spare card and sloshed some diluted ink on it, and cut it out roughly to keep in with the loose colouring.  The chevrons are from STAMPlorations Vignette: Chevron and Arrows and the sentiment is from Neat & Tangled Everyday Labels.

Pop on over to the Colour Me... blog to see what the Design Team have created and I hope you'll join in!
