You're Tweet

 Hello my CMHCD friends,

Today starts another challenge at Color My Heart Color Dare. These next two weeks we will have a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge for y'all. I chose to use Glacier/Silver/Avocado. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

I started off with a silver cardstock, placed down my stencil, and added dye ink using the glacier and avocado colors. I heat set the ink and was left with a translucent glacier and avocado color shiny cardstock. Then I took off the stencil and nudged it over a bit and added some white acrylic paint all over the base. I again took off the stencil and there was a beautiful feather silhouette shadow.

Now for our challenge!

I chose Glacier/Siver/Avocado

I thought this sentiment and image from Close to My Heart- My Sunshine stamp set was a perfect complement to the abstract feathery background. I added four avocado color pearls for some embellishment.

I tied the card together by using the same silver cardstock around the outside of the oval as its base. You can see with the light directly on the card the luster of the silver.

Well, thank you again for taking the time out of your busy day to visit my corner of the internet. I do hope you will join us at Color My Heart Color Dare and play along.

Lots of good crafting vibes headed your way. I hope you all have a fantastic day and please stay safe and stay healthy. Until then take care and we will see you soon!

Wow, fantastic background, and love that bird stamp, I'll have to pull mine out of my stash, it's so nice when your reminded of older stamps and can get new use of it. Very pretty card.
