Color Dare #235--Dreamin' Big

Welcome back to another Color My Heart Color Dare challenge blog post!  This week we are featuring colors from the Close to My Heart Dreamin' Big paper pack.  There are 10 fabulous colors in this collection and we are challenging you to use at least 4 of them (excluding the neutrals) and without adding new colors.  

My usual creative process for the Color Dare challenges involves finding a sketch challenge to use. This week I decided to feature some of the zip strips and thus came up with my very own card layout.

Close to My Heart products used:
     White Daisy CS
     Dreamin' Big paper pack
     Dreamin' Big Cardmaking Bundle stamps and                     Thin Cuts
     Black CS
     Black Shin Han Touch Marker
     Slate Ink
     Whisper Ink
     Clear Shimmer Brush

Here is a tip to use when you want to "pop up" those diecut items (like my two butterflies above).  Use the Thin Cut dies to cut thin craft foam and then glue it to the bottom of the item and then to the card front!  It is much easier than cutting pieces of 3D Foam Tape to fit.

Here is the Color Dare Color Graphic--just click on it to get to check out what the rest of the fabulous Design Team has to inspire you.
