Color Dare #59--Choose Your Own Color with Slate and Whisper

Welcome back to another Color My Heart Color Dare post!  This week we are challenging you to use both Close To My Heart colors Slate AND Whisper with one other color of your choice.  Feel free to substitute similar colors if you don't have these CTMH colors yet and you may use neutrals such as White Daisy, Colonial White and others from the Basics CTMH color palette which you can see here.  (The background panel is White Daisy although my photo editing program makes it look a little pinkish.)  I chose the color Ruby and used In the Background Stamps chevron and Happy Autumn stamps.  The postage stamp frame was cut using the Art Philosophy cartridge (page 24 Square 6 cut at 2.25").  

The floral stamp was actually stamped twice--once with masking off the leaves and stems with a piece of scotch tape while inking the flowers with Ruby ink and removing the tape before stamping.  The second time I stamped it I masked off the flowers with tape so only the stems and leaves would be stamped in Slate ink.

We would really love for you to join us this week at the Color Dare!  There is a random monthly prize and weekly blog badges to be won!  

Check out what the rest of the Design Team and this week's fabulous Guest Designer Karen has to inspire you: SarahPamBeccaShirleySheri and Gretchen.  Don't forget to leave them some comments on their beautiful projects. 

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
:) Marie

  1. Hi Marie! I like your pop of red on this card with the little flowers and the chevrons! Very pretty!

  2. I love the Ruby and Whisper strips you added to the background. So simple to do, yet it adds so much interest!
