I actually made two cards for this month's "Puddles of Colour" Diva Dare as I wasn't sure which one I was going to post. This card incorporated the actual dare, which focused on incorporating colouring and /or painting on your card. Yesterday's card was the result of me wanting to stretch myself by not only doing the dare but also incorporating the optional components of using kraft cardstock and mixed media as well.
Since I am not much of a colourer, and don't have many tools to do so, I tend to shy away from it. My only colouring medium consists of some Twinkling H2Os I bought years ago and still have for those "emergency" colouring situations -- this month's Diva Dare being a case in point LOL!
I fussy cut the flowers from Let It Be and coloured them with Twinkling H2Os. Still in love with the heart die from the Scalloped Trim Trio Border set so I threw it into the mix, and since I haven't used my beloved Flutterby die recently just had to add that as well. Flowers, hearts and butterflies on one card sure makes me happy :) The bottom right hand corner was a bit empty so I used the arrow die and stamped it with the matching image from Take Note. A touch of distressing finished things off nicely.
