Today I am going to enter another Color My Heart Color Dare! If you would like to see the rules, other entries, or enter a piece of your own then click on the link below.
For my three colors I chose Lagoon, Peach, and Gold. I am using white as my neutral color. To start with I gathered some supplies. I pulled out my Peach Ink, Lagoon Ink, a water brush, and some Picture My Life Watercolor Cards - Gold. I should note that as I type this the watercolor cards are in the clearance section of my online store for only $4.00 (regularly $8.95) so they will only be available while supplies last.
I started by brushing some clear water over the chosen watercolor card. Next I blotted some of the Lagoon ink onto my All-Purpose Mat straight from the ink pad. Using my water brush I picked up some of the color and let it organically flow onto my watercolor card.
While that piece dried I took a piece of White Daisy Cardstock I cut to 4.25" x 11" and folded it in half for my card base. Then I took another piece of the same cardstock and cut it to 4.25" x 5.5". This piece I drew a light pencil line through the middle.
Once I had my stamping done I rounded the corners of both the folded card base and the stamped background piece using my Corner Rounder. Then I added the gold all around the edge by using some VersaMark ink, and Princess Gold Embossing Powder. Hint: Be sure to heat both the front edge and the back edge of the cardstock to make sure the gold adheres well, remember it wraps around the edge so you want it completely melted onto the edge of the cardstock.
For the inside of the card I used many of the same techniques. This time using components from the CTMH Feels Like Home - Scrapbooking stamp set. This is a great set for use in scrapbooking, but I also like it for cards, too! Once I had all my pieces together it was simply a matter of assembly.
That is all there is to if for today's card and entry into this Color Dare! Thank you for reading my blog and, as usual, I love to read your comments, answer your questions, and learn new ideas in the comment section below.
