Happy Wednesday! I stopped by the Color My Heart Color Dare and found an amazing color combination that I couldn’t wait to play with. Anything with the Basics makes my heart beat a little faster.
This sweet little Otter from the Punny Pals stamp set had yet to be inked. Appalled? So was I. Right away I knew that he’d find a home on this card and Mink cardstock was just the right hue to leave him uncolored, except for the shell which I touched up with my Shin Han Marker in as close to a Sweet Leaf shade as I had. One of the techniques I used to bring a little detail to this card was stamping the sentiment along the side and then outlining the square with a freehanded black fine point marker.
The colors for this weeks color dare are Mink, Sweet Leaf and Heather. I have always loved the combinations that the Design Team puts together and their inspiration is so diverse. Make sure you take a minute and visit the Color My Heart Color Dare and maybe even play along!
Thanks so much for stopping by…I hope you’ll come by again real soon!
UPDATE: I was very humbled when I stopped by the Color Dare blog this morning and learned that my card was the Diamond Winner for Challenge #276.
