Love this Color Dare! Pinks and greens are part of my go-to palette! So this week the colors are a very pretty Smoothie and a nice Topiary...perfect!
This card is a sneak peak at the July Stamp of the Month: Sweet Life. These colors were just right for the apple! I used our markers and Alcohol Blending Pen to color the apple and leaves. The blossoms are colored with the Chalk Marker to make them look more white against the cardstock. I added a touch of Smoothie to the blossoms with a water pen to give it that bit of pink the real blossoms have. Some burlap ribbon and Mocha pearls finish the look. Oh...the message is from the Card Chatter: Sympathy stamp set. By the way, this stamp set is NOT just for times you need a sympathy message!

Happy Thoughts is a fun and fresh stamp set. I added the neutral color of Champagne to accent Smoothie and Topiary. The Smoothie flower head is cut out and layered on top of the stem. I also added a touch of Champagne ink with a water pen to the inside of the leaves to pull all the colors together. For the bird I wanted some Smoothie in the details. Coloring with the marker just wasn't working the way I wanted. So I colored some Smoothie on the cardstock then stamped the bird on top with Champagne and cut it out! As you can see, it created a nice soft touch to the bird details. A few Pink Glitter Gems and some Bitty Sparkles finish the look!
