For this week I was excited to play with the brand new Cricut Collection ~ Flower Market!!  I saw the hydrangeas and knew that was what I was going to create.  It is so easy and turns out so cool, take a look…

Color Dare #205 ~ Flower Market ~ Thank you card ~ CatScrapbooking.comI decided the white was too much for the background so I watercolored the cardstock to match the Juniper. Love the way this turned out and it took no time!!! I did have to bust out my new Shimmer Brush Z3293 I used it in the centers of the flowers.

Now it is your turn to create! Just create a project (card, layout or other craft project) using this weeks colors.  Then link them to the Color My Heart Blog ~ Color Dare #205 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday July 28, 2016 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!

Purr-fect Halloween ~ Aug SOTM 2016 ~ Watercoloring ~ Artbooking ~ CatScrapbooking.comI watercolored the background as I wanted to give the effect of a midnight sky with the moon coming through.  I realized I could not use a black cat so I went for an orange kitty.
