Make it Monday Collage Elements and ColourQ #183







Hello! This weeks Make It Monday( which I love to play) is to make a card with collage elements. 
When I started stamping my layers on each other I liked the lightness of it. As I tried to add flowers or something it just took away for the soft look. So I STOPED! Hard to believe I stopped but I did! Some of the stamps I stamped off first so the color would not be to dark. I went with the pretty colors from ColourQ this week.

 I am feeling a bit dizzy today , another reason to leave well enough alone!

Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Marybeth you did a wonderful job with this challenge. I really like the colors you used and the way in which you used your leaves. It's a nice CAS as well I think. You've left some nice white space and the card is very balanced. Well done. This is my first time playing one of the Make it Monday Challenges. I found this challenge a lot more difficult than I though it would be. Learning to choose the right stamps for a collage is a challenge itself; placement of those stamps another. I can now look at my card and see where I went wrong. This is my first time to your blog. It's lovely! And I do hope you're feeling better.

    Sincerely,

  14. So pretty, Marybeth. I agree that it is hard to know when to stop sometimes, but you stopped at the perfect point. I also used these colors for my collage card. I think they work because they are all nice and soft.

  15. You achieved a lightness that most collages are lacking. Great use of the trendy trees stamp, too. I never would have thought of that.
    Hope you are feeling better and that dizziness is nothing serious. Take card of yourself, Marybeth.

  20. Looked through the lineup at PTI and finally found you! Your card as usual is simply perfection. Loving the sweet simplicity and stamp choices. Dizzy? Why? Hope all is well. Been away from my blog due to family in house, missed all my favorites!

  21. Great job on this technique, Marybeth. I'm not very good at collage types of things (which is probably why I should practice, eh??). I never know which images and things to put together without having it look crazy. I love how you used these colors with the technique. ;-)
