Color Dare #153 ~ Sunset, Hollyhock & Olive + White Daisy

Are you ready for a new Color My Heart Color Dare? Well here you go!

The colors this week are Sunset, Hollyhock and Olive with White Daisy. I immediately thought of the pinks and oranges you see in a sunset! Here is what I did to create that feeling.

Using an image from Brushstrokes, I stamped a 2nd generation image in Sunset and then Hollyhock. Then I stamped 1st generation images in the same colors, stacking them on top of each other. This created my sunset feeling. The tree is stamped in Olive as well as the ground below it. That's it! Very quick and easy and oh so pretty.

  1. I really like the way you used the second generation stamping for the background and then the olive for the ground. It looks so cool as you don't realize it is the same stamp.

    1. Thank you very much, Catherine! I'm very pleased with how this came out.

  2. Fabulous card! Love how you did the background behind the tree. Thank you for inspiring us at Color My Heart Challenge Blog.
