Project using Kate's ABCs

Welcome To Funky Cards

On Monday I kicked off 
by posting this project on CWC.  Each Monday one CWC Design Team member will showcase one Cricut cartridge and create a project using that cartridge.  For those of you who may have missed it, I am posting the project on my blog today:)

 I currently own about 20 Cricut cartridges and my favorite for the moment is Kate's ABCs. I wanted to share with you today how you could use a cut out from this Cricut cartridge to create a home decor project.  For those of you who follow my blog, you know that I love to paint.  Many of you claim that you don't know how to paint.  Well no more excuses!  Here is an easy way to paint!

Start with a blank canvas.  Mine was 11" by 14."

Using white card stock, I cut an image from Kate's ACBs at 6 1/2" and traced it onto the blank canvas.

Now it is a matter of choosing paint colors.  You have transfered this adorable cut out onto a canvas to hang in a little girl's room or anywhere you would like.  You can do this with any Cricut cartridge so you can see the opportunities are limitless.  I added "Love Life" and two butterflies to fill in  space on the canvas.  I freehanded these but you can use Cricut cuts and fonts!

I hope you have been inspired. Time to get out the paints and the Cricut and see what you can cook up:)

Thanks for stopping by!
