Atlantic Heart 100th sketch challenge using the Color my heart color dare #134

More play time, woo hoo! I am trying to create cards for a workshop on Friday night, I love challenges for the inspiration they give me. The colours for the colour your heart dare this week at first sounded challenging to me, but once I started playing I am pleased with the results.
Cotton Candy, Olive, Lagoon, Black and white daisy.

I also used the sketch from the 100th sketch from the Atlantic Heart sketch challenge.
I rotated the sketch and used a new to me technique for the background. I used a stained glass technique for the background.

You use masking tape ripped into smaller/thinner strips and lay them on your base, I then sponged olive, lagoon and cotton candy onto the base. Carefully peel the tape off of the base and you have the stained glass effect. I watched a video on you tube to see this technique and thought I would try it. The sentiment is from a new set in the next Seasonal expressions number 2, called Wavy Blooms, love the flowers and sentiments on this stamp set. This new Seasonal expressions will be available on April 1, you will love the new items being introduced in this catalogue. I used sequins from one of the other kits from CTMH to be the blossoms on the sketch. I am happy with this card.

Colour my heart challenge #133

Hi again, I was trying to combine two challenges, but missed one by a bit. That is what I get for waiting until the last minute. The color my heart color dare #133 challenges us to use these colours:  Black, colonial white, smoothie, flaxen, crystal blue, gypsy and honey.
This is quite the colour combination; but it is the colour pallet for the 'Wanderful' paper pack in the annual inspirations idea book for Close to my heart.
The first card was inspired by pinterest, the greatest inspiration and time waster there is ;).

My second card I used the sketch from last weeks Atlantic hearts challenge, but finished too late to add it to the link up. That is ok, I got to spend some time creating.

All supplies used are from Close to my Heart, if you are interested in getting your own supplies, please check out the shopping cart on the right. The stamp set used in the second card is from the March stamp of the month, just four of the fourteen stamps in the set. Spend $50 in products and qualify to get the stamp set for $5. Thanks for looking.
