Birthday cones

Make It Monday, this week, features Danielle, showing us
a bright happy technique of taking our stamped images from
black and white to color.

First stamped all over design and sentiment using Colorful Treats.
Then cutout center with Basic Bookmark #1.
Masking each cone, so that my streamers (Hooray) were behind the cones,
and with the help of my misti, 
then reverse masking so the streamers could be switched to color,
and be stamped in the same place. 
Make sense?
Colored the inside portion of the tag with copics,
popped up the tag, and added a few colorful sequins on the inside,
black on the outside.
Love this technique! Such striking results.
See Dani's video here on Nichole's blog:
