Heart 2 Heart ~ Candy Apple

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

This week we have a Color Challenge and the color we are featuring is Candy Apple.  Candy Apple is a bright red and it is perfect for celebrating the up coming July 4th holiday.

To make this card I used the Share the Joy Thin Cuts that is part of a special that Close to My Heart is running until the end of this month.  With this special there is also a adorable stamps sets which are exclusive to this special which you can see all here! I used the Celebrate with a Bang stamp set. I stamped 1 1/4 inch white circles with the various stamp in Candy Apple and Sapphire.  I then used my Red Shimmer Brush on the Candy Apple stamped images.  I then created a blue shimmer by mixing the Clear Shimmer with a drop of Sapphire ink.  Then using a dry watercolor brush I applied the blue shimmer. I also added a bow with the Candy Apple Striped Ribbon.

Trying to capture the shimmer on the card is a challenge, I hope you are able to get the idea.  It really looks great in person.

Now it is your time to give it a try and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until July 31th to participate in this challenge. We love to see your inspirations!!

Happy Crafting!
