Color Dare Easter Card

This week’s Color My Heart Dare allows you to choose colors from a Tic-Tac-Toe board featuring the palette from the “Make Waves” collection.  Since Easter is coming much sooner this year, I decided to begin making a few cards to send to family and friends.  I was inspired by a card I found in a magazine and decided to try to recreate it using ONLY the colors Lagoon, Willow, and Pansy. As always, the list of supplies used on this project can be found at the very bottom of this post.


I began with a 4¼” x 4″ piece of White Daisy cardstock that I sponged with Willow and Lagoon Ink.  I created various masks to create the hills and sky, then sponged the entire creation with White Daisy ink to blend the colors even more.  The images were stamped using Black Memento Ink, then shaded using our ShinHan Markers.

I, of course, had to add a little bit of sparkle with the Clear Shimmer Brush to the images. The White Daisy cardstock was adhered to some Pansy cardstock, then onto the card base.  Even though was very simple to make, the cheery warmth of this card makes me feel ready for Spring to arrive.



I would love to see you join the Color My Heart Dare challenge this week.  They love to see participation from all of their crafty friends.  If you join the challenge this week, we can  pick up this special “Buddy Badge”  to proudly display on the side bar of our blogs,  and get an extra chance to any of the random draws. Make sure to let me know if you decided to join in this week.  I can’t wait to see what you create!!
