Color Dare Challenge #35...Won't You Join Me?


As the season is changing to autumn colors, I have to say these were tough colors for me to work with, but as part of The Color Dare Design Team I am a 'team player' and I am glad to have worked it out because I actually love this piece.
I recently received a batch of new stamp sets as a gift from my mom, which included the 'Asian by Design' set from Inkadinkado, which I used in this extra-large tag. It's a bit hidden by the Prima flowers, but the Bamboo image on the left is HUGE and really great as is the Cherry Blossom image, which I embellished
with a few teeny-tiny pearls.
The sentiment stamps are from two different Scrappy Cat sets. Hey...when stamping on a surface like a vellum tag, use a solvent ink like Staz-On. It takes a little longer to dry, but it will give you a vivid image and will not streak once dry. Add a few brads and a nice, thick batch of fibers at the top and you are good to go.

So are you up for the challenge? I would love to see some of my friendly followers enter this challenge, so let me know if you do. I will be checking the list as well. Head on over to The Color Dare blog for all the details along with inspiration from
the rest of the design team.

I will be back a little later with yet another projects and a little bit about today's 'pre-birthday' celebration.
