Floral Card ~ Color Dare #444 Tic Tac Toe

 Hello and welcome to a new Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge! this week we're doing one of our popular Tic Tac Toe challenges. Pick your colors by row, column or diagonal. After that if you want to use some of the other colors in the grid that's fine. You can even use them all!

We reference Close To My Heart colors but you can use any brand you have as long as you can make a very close match. Kind of close doesn't count. Make any paper craft you like. When you're ready to join the challenge use the link in the post on our home page

This card is also being entered in a challenge at Heart 2 Heart.

I LOVE this stamp set and have been using it in many different ways and styles. This just might be my favorite, though!

I started with picking my colors. I used the top row with Peach, Ballerina and Sangria. I added Glacier, Pebble and Rose Gold. 

The background was dry embossed on Pebble cardstock with Pebble ink applied to the folder on the background. This created a very subtle look that makes the embossed flowers stand out just a bit more. 

I stamped the flowers in Intense Black ink because this stands up to coloring the image without bleeding. I started with pink all over the flower petals. Then I went in with the darker color leaving a bit of the pink exposed for a highlight on the petals. 

The inside was left blank for now. Once I know what I want to use it for I can add a sentiment or write a personal note.
