Cute Koala Card ~ Color Dare #539

Welcome to our popular Tic Tac Toe Challenge at Color My Heart Color Dare! Start by picking your colors by row, column or diagonal. After that if you want to use more of the colors in the grid go for it! See the graphic for the fine print of the rules.

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 kind of paper craft you like. When you're ready to join our challenge click here for the direct link

I absolutely love our March Stamp of the Month: Precious Moments (link is below). I can't resist all those cute little animals! This set is only available during March so get yours now! You don't want to miss out on this adorable set!  This card features the koala and is my version of a card made by Dawn Haight. 

I also love our Irresistible Cardstock (link is below) and felt it would be a good match with this design. I'm a fan of plaid so that is the one that said, "pick me, pick me!" Haha. 

Using the diagonal of colors: Wisteria, Sapphire and Periwinkle and Blending Brushes I applied the ink to the Irresistible Cardstock. All you have to do is rub the brush on the ink pad then rub the ink onto the cardstock to have the magic happen! The glossy part of the pattern resists the ink which creates the pattern. Check the photo below for the different patterns in this fun paper pack.

The koala was stamped in Intense Black Exclusive Ink so it wouldn't bleed when I colors with markers. Our TriBlend Markers are amazing and have 3 shades in one marker making it easy to blend the color. You can see the colors used in the photo. 

Thin Foam Tape was used to pop up the image and sentiment layers. A couple Black Dots were added for fun! Don't forget we have a great item to have on hand.....White Cards and Envelopes Value Pack. You'll always be ready to make a card!
