Color My Heart Color Dare #578

 Hello!  Thank you for stopping by.  Color My Heart Color Dare #578 is up and ready for your fun and creativity!

Use at least 3 of these 4 colors.  The only one I didn't use was linen.  I really love all these colors but when it came to making my card, I really struggled with what to do.  But never fear!  Tonic Studios was here!  Duh da da da!!!

Hi, I'm Melissa and I am a Tonic-holic.  This company really knows how to have a sale.  Recently they put some of their older kits on sale.  I do know how to say no.  I've had to learn, so I shop with reckless discernment.  LOL  I found 2 kits that I absolutely loved and they were on sale for $19.99!  You can't say no, not when they are so great.  I have been wanting a really good window die set and ta-da, here it is....

For the base (Mink) I used a brick stencil and some gray ink to lightly add a brick wall.  Then I cut out the window.  Using black card I cut out the detail of the window.  Before I adhered it I did use another die from Tonic Studios Sew Crafty collection to make the lacy curtain.  The cat is from a Spellbinders set.  I made the window box by cutting a strip of card (Charcoal) and stamped a woodgrain pattern on it.  In the window die set there is this little die which isn't a die, it debosses the word "home" - well I treated it like letterpress and inked it up and pressed it onto the window box.  Then added some leaves.  The leaves and curtain are in the Toffee color.  I wanted to add a bicycle but I couldn't get my Silhouette to connect with my computer so I just moved on.

I do hope you'll join us for a fun challenge!
