Mid-Week Challenge Spotlight

This week we're sharing the Tuesday Tutorials,Tips and Techniques challenge by Design Team Member Colleen.  Here's what she shared -

"This is probably not new to some of you but I had so much fun with this card.  I used dies to cut out the leaf shapes and then inked around the inside of the cutout leaf.  I used different colored leaves to inset into the shapes I just cut out.  I also inked around the leaves before I adhered them down.  So I would like to see you use both a positive and negative shape."

And here's her beautiful example!
Show us what you created with this challenge by sharing it on the Creative Inspiration Forum.

Happy Scrapping and Happy Cardmaking!

Tracy says "I want you to really dig into your stash for this challenge. Here's a list of items you can use from your stash. You can use as many as you like but you have to use at least 4 from the list. And be sure and list which items you used.
Stash items:

I've used all of these on my layout.
So use up that stash! You have til the end of the month to enter!"
