Color My Heart Color Dare #540

 Hello!  Thank you for stopping by.  I always appreciate the visits.

The Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #540 is up and ready for you to play along with us.  Out of the 5 colors below, you need to use at least 3.

For my card I chose Sapphire, Ballerina and Pine.  My card features a stamp set from Pink & Main.  This is an older one, I don't even know if it's available anymore.  I couldn't find it in the shop.  I also used an embossing folder from Spellbinders.

I stamped the image on some watercolor card stock using the MISTI and some Simon Says Intense Black ink.  I colored the image using some Zig Real Brush markers and a water brush.  I'm glad that I left the stamp in the MISTI because when I was done coloring this image, some of the black bled just a little which didn't hurt the image at all, but I still wanted crisp black lines.  So I put it back in, applied some anti-static powder (powder tool from Pink & Main is awesome!) and stamped the image again using VersaFine Black Onyx ink and then heat set with clear embossing powder.  I then fussy cut the image out and matted the sentiment portion over a strip of the base card color cardstock and then adhered to a pink embossed panel.

I hope you like my card and that it inspires you to join this color challenge.  Which 3 colors will you use?  Or will you really challenge yourself to use all 5?  Have fun!
