Color Dare 229 - Hello

For this week's Color Dare challenge, I made this card to include with my customer orders that just came in.  I always include a card with each order, it's my way of saying "thanks" and allows me to try out new techniques or color combinations at the same time.
For this card, I used the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge to cut out the title found on page 59 at 1.25" using Real Dial Size on silver glitter paper.  Then I put that on black cardstock and fussy cut.  (I had tried it without the black but the silver didn't pop enough for me, it faded into the background too much for my taste.)  Next, I cut a piece of White Daisy at 5" by 3.5" and used the D1660 Ink Blot stamp set for the background with Pansy and Raspberry ink.  Notice the larger splash on the upper right of the card, I was looking for more of a watercolor look so I inked the stamp then spritzed it with water before stamping, how cool is that for effect?!?!  Finally, a little freehand drawing of the lines around the edges and a few purple glitter gems for more sparkle.

You can find all these supplies on my Close To My Heart website if you don't already have a consultant, thanks for stopping by!
