Koala Card ~ Color Dare #541

 Color My Heart Color Dare shares a new challenge every Friday. This challenge give you Shades of Grey with ONLY 2 colors of choice to use with the Grey. See the fine print on the graphic for more info. 

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

I've been having so much fun with our March Stamp of the Month: Precious Moments. The images are so adorable and the sentiments are great. This set is only available during March so get yours now or you'll be sad if you miss out. 

I decided to pair this challenge with Raspberry and Clover. I blended those two colors on Irresistible Cardstock for a bright  background. Using Blending Brushes the ink goes on easily and created a fun look. The floral pattern was perfect for this Koala carrying a flower basket!

Speaking of the Koala, I used TriBlend markers to color that layer. You can see the marker caps in the photo. A Water Brush was used to paint the flowers/leaves with ink from the lid of the Exclusive Ink Pads.

To top it off, I added some Stickles Diamond to the flower centers and by the sentiment.
