You Color My World ~Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon~

You Color My Heart 
    Hiya! I'm here with a post to share a project featuring this wonderful watercolor cut file for Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon. I am pretty sure I will never get sick of creating with the files from this shop as they are always unique and have that sweet touch that is only Lisa! The whole cutting file set includes so much to keep you busy and creating. I am excited to do whole layout with these wonderful images! Or, do a shaped card with the globe and add this to it! Oh, maybe I'll do a second card! ;)

   To make this a bit more authentic looking I decided to cut the white layers multiple times and add them together for a "real" paintbox look. When adhering this to the card base, I slightly folded the design so the top of the box sits up a bit. The paint colors were colored with marker on white paper and the title colored with Distress Inks. I cut another layer and offset to help that stand out a little bit more. The last detail with a bit of shimmer.

   The original card base was creating with the Pocket Cards 1 cutting file. However I ended up only using the base shape (and not the chevron layer) because I found this great frame pattern paper that I thought went well with the card. To add a bit of color I used the basic shape and then off set to create a few extra layers.
