Retired Colors Inspire a Card


At the suggestion of Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge I am using some of my favorite colors that have recently been retired by Close To My Heart. The colors I chose are Pacifica, Juniper, Bashful and Poppy. To create the card I went to the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.



   



Here is my supply list:
  1. Stitched heart thin cut  
  2. Documented Cardmaking stamp set and thin cuts
  3. Black Ink Stamp Pad Pigment  
Here's a critique on our new Black pigment ink pad. I LOVE IT!!!!!!!

I heard good things about it but had no idea just how great it was. It stamps crisp and clean and BLACK and it cleans up better than our water based stamp pad. This will be my go to black from now on.

Thanks!

XOXO

  8. Super cute card, Dorothy, and a great way to combine both challenges! I especially like how you used both tones for the banner and backed the Blush cardstock panel with Blush glitter paper. And I have to say, the stitched hearts are ma favorite of all the Thin Cuts, they add such a nice touch to a project. Thanks for sharing with us this week at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

  12. Your favorite colors were a great blend of colors for your card and interpretation of the sketch...and the two tone sides are such a plus when doing these color challenges because it allows that flexibility. Thanks for sharing this with us at Color Dare and please don't forget to come back to our two other active color challenges this week.
