February Like It Love It Gotta Have It Challenge

This month at Paper Wishes for the Like It Love It Gotta Have It Challenge, we're doing spot color. In this technique, you only color part of your image. Here are the step by step instructions:
Stamp the image you plan to use. You want to pick something that is large enoug
h to show off this technique - if you use a small image, you won't be able to color
much of it, or you'll end up coloring the whole thing!

Next, take a piece of scrap cardstock and punch out the shape you want to use - it can be a circle, a square, a star, a heart, pretty much anything.

Tape it over your image where you want to place color and color only within that shape.

Remove your mask, and now you have your spot color! Fun!

Like It: Just color part of your image without using the punched mask.

Love It: Follow the instructions above.

Gotta Have It: Try doing a shape within a shape, like a heart within a circle, using two colorways, or black and white in the center, color in the larger shape.

Post your projects in the challenge area on the Paper Wishes Message Board - let's see what you come up with!
