Color Dare #302

Glacier, Mink, and Bashful

With the NEW Guidelines at Color My Heart for neutrals I was able to add Charcoal 
to my card. Made it so  much more fun. I used the light side of Mink for the wavy 
bottom and the darker side for the leaves. Then came my dilemma. I usually like to 
stamp my images as much as possible so I stamped these flowers from the 
Beautiful Friendship stamp set, cut them out and attached to the card.
Then I looked at the card made by Sue Bruch and I wanted to make flowers
 with my stitched flower set from MFT.  Now I can't decide which card I like better. 
What do you think?

Fresh Air at Heart 2 Heart

Brings a "Fresh Air" Background
The Fresh Air paper pack is full of fresh 
outdoor colors: blues, greens, browns.
Colors that will make you smile.
I used the papers to make a fresh and different 
background for my Smile greeting. To make 
this background cut 1/2 inch strips of paper and 
layer them randomly on a piece of card stock. 
Add your freshly made background to a card 
or scrapbook page.
Be sure to play with us at Heart 2 Heart each 
week as a new challenge is posted each Monday.

Color Dare #300

It's Been Six Years
Since the first Color Dare came on the scene, I remember when Sarah Stone invited Close to My Heart consultants to come and play at the new Color Dare challenge. And...I was there. You can visit my first post at Color My Heart HERE. Time really does go by fast at my age. Thanks Sarah.
And... six years later I still love playing at Color My Heart. To get the soft colors on my card I stamped the image in permanent black ink on water color paper. Then I placed one drop of  Bashful, Mink, and Pacifica re-inker on an acrylic block. I used the water brush to water color the image. Fun and easy.

Join the contest and design a special project with these colors and win a medium size box of fun Close to My Heart products. Be sure to post your project at Color My Heart.

Having Fun

With a Square Card
I was in the mood to deviate from the norm 
and make a square card when the sketch at 
Freshly Made Sketches came my way. 
The flower comes from For You Darling
 stamp set and the sentiment comes from 
The colors come from the color challenge 
Fresh Air Color Palette. I used the colors
 New England Ivy, Juniper, and Glacier.
