Color Dare #200 ~ Ruby, Sapphire and Colonial White ~~ PRIZE ALERT!

Since this is such a special Color Dare we are going to invite the Diamond Award Winner for challenge #200 to select colors for a future Color Dare challenge. Sounds like fun, doesn't it? See the end of this post for prize info!

Color My Heart is challenging you with the colors Ruby, Sapphire with Colonial White. If you don't have those exact colors just use something close. Here is what I've created to inspire you. Don't forget to check out our home page for more inspiration!

I decided to keep it simple. I stamped the images in Archival Black ink because I planned to use markers and didn't want it to bleed. Just some touches of the challenge colors and it was done. For the Shimmer Trim the blue was a bit too bright so I used the same blue marker and colored over the Shimmer Trim. This darkened the blue just enough to go better with the Sapphire.

All products are Close To My Heart:
--Enjoy the Ride stamp set
--Colonial White Cards and Envelopes Value Pack
--Ink: Ruby, Sapphire, Archival Black
--Cardstock: Colonial White, Ruby, Sapphire
--ShinHan Markers: Marine Blue, Cherry Pink
--Shimmer Trim: Red, Blue
--Thin 3D Foam Tape

Let's go shopping!
If you need a consultant I'd be happy to help!

This blog title says "Prize Alert!" so it's time to explain that.
