Dare to Join the Team!!
Hello and Happy Wednesday!!! I am sooooooooo excited to share some great news: Riley has asked me to join her Design Team for The Color Dare!! WooHoo!! If you have been following my blog at all, you know I participate in her challenges quite often...love her color combos! Plus it's always fun to come up with "daring" blog post titles!! LOL!!
This week's Color Dare is #100...and it's a fun one! Sahara Sand, Rose Red, and Baja Breeze. I was so happy to see Sahara Sand make the line-up...it's one of my favorite neutrals, and doesn't get enough love! I think it is remarkably versatile! I opted to feature polka dots in my card, using it in texture, dsp, and stamps. The main image is from Flight of the Butterfly. Love how this 2-step stamp set works. The wings are stamped in sahara sand,, then the polka dots added in rose red. I stamped the butterfly twice; once flat on the very vanilla, then again, but punched it out and popped up with a dimensional. I sponged the panel with baja breeze, and layered it on baja breeze. The larger layer of very vanilla took a trip through the Big Shot with the perfect polka dots impressions folder. I added some subtles pattern paper in rose and baja...and added the scallop trim detail. Finally, some seam binding was added...I REALLY hope this stuff (which retired in April) shows up in the new Idea Book and Catalog this summer! Love it!
So join us this week with your ideas! Grab your card stock and stamp...can't wait to see what you create!!
