Today - Dr. Seuss

Howdy!

Today over at the Color My Heart Color Dare challenge blog. We have a NEW challenge which is to be inspired by this picture!


The colors that I saw in this picture that inspired me are the shades of pink and the blue of the water in the pool. I created this card by bringing out my stencil and distress inks. I applied the inks using a makeup brush. Then I used a water bottle to activate the properties of the distress inks. I then die cut the circles for the sentiment. When I put the card together. I thought that the card was missing something. So I chose to splatter paint onto the card. (If you wish to see how I splatter paint. This video has that technique.)

Stamps: CTMH You Are My Happy
Paper: CTMH White Daisy, Bazzill Aruba
Ink: CTMH Intense Black, Tim Holtz Distress Ink Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick, Abandoned Coral
Accessories: M. Graham & Co Acrylic Ivory Black, Altenew Broken Chevron stencil, Tim Holtz Stitched Circles, QuicKutz Nesting Circles

A complete list of the supplies is under the picture. The list, contains compensated affiliate links. If you wish to create a similar card. There is no cost to you for using the links. But it does provide funds to help continue this blog.
