Color Dare #230 ~ Pixie, Saffron, Whisper with White

Isn't this a sunny and bright color dare! The Whisper and White Daisy makes the Saffron and Pixie colors POP! I pulled out my Safari Ballet stamp set and got to work! Actually it was easy since I did a "my version" of the card on page 54 of the Annual Inspirations Book. Hey, that's what the photos are for.....inspiration! You can copy the sample in the photo or use it as a guide to create your own spin on it!

I used watercolor paper and Archival Black ink for the hippo. Isn't she cute! Once the  ink dried I went to work "painting" with a water brush and ink from the cover of the pad. The hippo is popped up a bit on Thin 3D Foam. I also did a watercolor wash to create a shadow for the hippo. This makes her look grounded rather than floating in air.  The stars are from the My Girl Compliments. There is some Shimmer on the tutu, bow and slippers, too.

This was a very easy card to make. I adapted the card on page 54 to fit this color dare. Go ahead and use those samples in the book as a starting point!
