Technique Blog Hop- Multicolor Motifs

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month there are 14 of us highlighting the “Multicolor Motifs” Technique as shown on page 110 in the Autumn/Winter 2011 Idea Book!  This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique.  If you would like to start from the beginning, please visit this link.  While there you will also find a listing of all participants and their blog addresses if you should get lost or want to reference a blog along the way.  Let’s get started!

If you are coming from Shirley's Blog, you are on the right track! 

I used the colors goldrush, pear, and chocolate to color the pumpkin in the So Grateful stamp set.  I do apologize for it not being a clear picture. This is the first time I have tried this technique and I don't know if it is the person or the fact that I tried to use words to color.  Then I used one of the swirls to create a border around the base color of the card.
