CMCC No. 9 - With a Grateful Heart

This is my final post as the February Guest Designer at Colour Me...!  It's been so much fun to be a part of this talented team for 4 weeks.  Thank you Tara and Hayley!!!

Hey, it's time to take a look at the colors for this week's challenge...don't you think?

CMCC No. 9
Don't those berries look delicious?  Reminds me of summer...and warmer weather!

I used a technique that I haven't used in a while.  Masking and stamping.  I measured, then masked off that diagonal strip with large post-it notes.  I used the challenge colors + crumb cake to stamp my pattern.  It still needed a little something, so I added some sparkle to a few of the flowers with my Stardust Glitter pen.

Every time I use this technique, it's so much fun to pull of the masking and reveal the finished pattern.  It always makes me smile. :)

The 2 lines were done with a SU black marker, then I added the Hello sentiment.  Done.

Thanks, Hayley and Tara!  It's been an honor to join you for the month of February!
