Color Dare #124 - Glacier, White Daisy & Kraft

 Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season!
Let's kick off 2015 with a Color My Heart color dare: Glacier, White Daisy and Kraft.
I still had out some holiday type stamp sets and decided to show how you can make them work for other times of year, too. The more you use your stamps/supplies, the more economical they are!

I love this scooter! I did some paper piecing with Glacier cardstock to add some color. I stamped the scooter in Desert Sand on White Daisy cs. Then I stamped it again on Glacier cs and cut out only the body of the scooter. Add some adhesive and and place it on the scooter image. 
The gift was stamped in Glacier ink. I then used the Clay Shinhan Marker to color the flowers.
For some texture I used the Chevron Embossing Folder  on a piece of Kraft cs. The chevron pattern goes really well with the pattern on the scooter seat and tires! 
As for the cute little bird, I used a blending pen to add a touch of color. A sparkle flourish for the exhaust and a few for the gift and it was done!
