Color Dare #152 ~ Cranberry & Canary + Slate & White Daisy

Yea! It's a new color dare from Color My Heart

Each week the Design Team challenges you with a new set of colors to create with. This week it's Cranberry, Canary + Slate and White Daisy. If you don't have the exact colors just use something close. It's a lot of fun so come on and join us! 

I've created a standard size side fold card (5.5" x 4.25"). I sprayed a background using reinkers with some water in a spray pen. I love how it fills the background but doesn't over power it. The yellow and bottom red flower are popped up with 3D Foam Tape and that gives some texture as well.The red flowers are 2nd generation stamped. That means you ink your image, stamp on scrap paper then stamp directly on your cardstock before inking again. This gives a softer look to the image. The center of the yellow flower is 1st generation Cranberry so you can see the big difference it can make.
