Good!!! It's time for Color Dare #199, and the sweet ladies over at the Color My Heart blog asked me to Guest Design with them this week! I haven't had much of a chance to join in, so I was excited to have the motivation as well as the time this summer!
When I heard the color combination of Cranberry, Pacifica, Sunset, and White Daisy, I immediately thought of the new Magical Paper Collection from Close to My Heart...and sang in my head, "Mickey Mouse...Donald Duck!" ;)
***My apologies in advance--I am old school Color Dare and didn't realize we were to only use this week's colors! I added black as my neutral...
The current Stamp of the Month, The Long Way Home, is a perfect companion to all your travel pics, so it naturally fell into place in this cluster along with the Mickey head created out of Black Glitter Paper and my circle punches. I used some ticket shapes cut from the retiring Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge and some bits and pieces from the Fundamental Assortment Cranberry and the Magical Compliments and Sequins to add some punch.
This is my favorite thing to make these days with the little bows in the Fundamental Assortment...Minnie Mouse heads! I also incorporated some easy texture into my layout by dry embossing onto my CS using the Confetti Stars and Stripes Folders...
At the time I was creating this layout, I was also creating for an upcoming Blog Hop all about embossing, so I also used my Ranger Super Fine White Embossing Powder and Versamark Ink to add some heat embossing with this van image! It's a great way to add a white image to your creations!
|See that Black Shimmer Trim peeking out from behind the van? ;) Thought so!|
Be sure to tune in to MY WEBSITE on Friday at 4pm CST for another Close to My Heart FLASH SALE! Some of the supplies I used have been steeply discounted on the past Fridays, so I expect them to be again...AND it will be the LAST FLASH SALE this month!!! :)
