Color My Heart Color Dare #81

Color My Heart Color Dare #81

Where oh where is Spring?   As I was playing with the colors for this week's dare, Juniper, Sunset, and Blush, I came up with this idea.  I love these trees, so I wanted to use those at least one more time before Spring really does arrive.  Boy, won't we be ready this year?
Colors were sponged on the card.  I used Whisper ink on the snow mounds.
For other great examples using these colors, check here:

Here's another card I played around with this afternoon.  The sunset feather could be repositioned a little better in my next copy of this card, but I do like this as it could be used for a masculine card.  I used CTMH alcohol markers in addition to stamping on the bottom two feathers.  The top (Blush) feather is popped, however, that doesn't show on this photo. I used the CTMH Stitch Guide and foam mat to punch holes and then used markers for the  faux stitching on this card.
Hope we find Spring soon!


  1. I really love the way you graduated the colors to look like a sunrise! This is such a clever idea for a card (I too am wondering when spring is coming)! Thanks for playing along at Color My Heart this week.


  2. Great work! Love your coloring and shading on the trees and snow. And your three feathers card is a great way to incorporate the three colors. Thanks for taking the Color Dare!


Thanks for your comment. I appreciate hearing from you.
