Color Dare #260 Meets Try Stampin' on Tuesday #338

Welcome back to another Color My Heart Color Dare challenge blog post!  Our color challenges now go for two weeks to give you more time to play along.  This week we are challenging you to create something with all and only these exclusive Close to My Heart colors:  White Daisy, Charcoal, Bashful, Willow and Raspberry.  Of course if you don't have these Close to My Heart colors yet you can substitute similar colors so you can still join in the fun!

The gorgeous stamp I used is from the CTMH September National Stamping Month promotion card kit which comes with 10 interactive cards.  Charcoal Ink was used for stamping the focal image onto White Daisy cardstock.  The flower and leaves were colored by painting with Bashful, Raspberry and Willow inks. Clear Shimmer Brush was added to the flowers for a little extra shine.  The glittery bow trim was cut with the new Ribbon Border Thin Cut Die and Bashful Glitter paper. The focal panel is matted with Willow cardstock and the background papers are Raspberry cardstock and Bashful cardstock.

Here is the Color My Heart Color Dare graphic.   Don't you love how our new image features the papers instead of the inks as the papers are now two toned!  Just click on the image and it will take you to the Color Dare blog so you can see what the rest of the fabulous Design Team has created to inspire you.
