Color Dare # 76
This week's challenge is to use the color Smoothie with a neutral.
I paired it up with Cocoa to give it a little pop.
I had fun playing with this color and made a few different cards,
but this is the one that I liked best for the Color Dare Challenge.
All the supplies used are from Close To My Heart.
I found the idea for the card design on pinterest -- love that site!
- Stamps used are D1476 Card Chatter - Sympathy and C1352 You Are Beautiful (retired) and one of my favorite go-to floral stamps.
- To shade the flowers I used a waterbrush (retired) with ink from the Smoothie ink pad and the darker Smoothie alcohol marker.
- Finally I added the Glitz Stardust Gel Z1313 (soon to retire) to give the flowers a little shimmer.
This is one of the cards I will be offering at my February workshop.
1/18/14 -- Just learned that I won the Color Dare Sapphire (third runner-up) for this card, but I haven't figured out how to grab and display the badge for it on the side of my blog. Oh well, the learning continues. I'll keep trying!
