Have a Beautiful Day

Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #195Join us in this week’s challenge combining the colors, Thistle, Pear, Crystal Blue, Lagoon and White Daisy (all and only) until Thursday, June 2, 2016 to create and link up your project. Look forward to seeing your inspirations for this color challenge. We encourage you to use CTMH products; however you may use any products to participate using closest to colors...and still join in the fun.   

This Color Challenge was combined with the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #161. Had no idea what I was going to use in this sketch, but loved all the layering.  


Had just purchased a feathers stamp and die...stamped on white cardstock three larger feathers with lagoon, thistle and pear inks, die cut stamped feathers and die-cut more in white cardstock for layering, distressed edges, and adhered to the scalloped panel. Stamped a couple smaller feathers on white daisy cardstock with pear and thistle inks, fussy-cut, distressed and added to the bouquet of feathers.

Dir-cut a stitched scalloped frame for the focal point...stamped bird on white daisy cardstock with lagoon ink, colored with ShinHan alcohol-based pen, fussy-cut and adhered inside frame.  Stamped flowers on white daisy cardstock, sponged with lagoon and thistle inks, fussy-cut distressed and layered in frame and on panel with feathers with 3D Thin foam tape.  Sentiment stamped on white daisy cardstock, distressed and adhered with 3D foam tape.  

The inside was stamped masking with more feathers and flowers and panel added for sentiment or personal note.
