Exciting News! And this week's Color Dare! CD33



Whaaattt? When it rains it pours, right? Well, a week or so ago I decided to throw my hat into the ring for the upcoming season's design team for The Color Dare totally expecting to not make it, and to my suprise I MADE IT! Woo Hoo!! I was seriously jumping up and down with excitement! This, along with making Clear Dollar's guest designer along with Lori G (see her blog HERE) for September? Yeah, when it rains it pours many blessings!!
So, here we are my debut card for The Color Dare challenge blog. This week we dare you to create a project using Rich Razzleberry, Pale Plum, Old Olive and Very Vanilla.
These are some of my favorite colors, so I could not wait to jump right in and get to work! I chose to use a beautiful stamp set designed by the very talented Kim Teasdale at Clear Dollar stamps, simply called Peony. I just love to watercolor and this flower is one of my all time favs. I cannot WAIT to see what inspirations you gals create with these gorgeous colors!
The Details:
Stamps: Peony (CDStamps)
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Pale Plum, Very Vanilla, Cottage Wall dsp (su)
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Stazon Jetblack, Pale plum (marker)
Tools/Accessories: labels 4 & mega curved rectangle nesties,
rich razzleberry ribbon, d'vine swirls embossing folder
watercolor pen, dimentionals, ticket corner punch, sponge
Thank you for visiting my blog! It really does make my day! :0) now go forth and create! (lol)
