Bringing Calm

Hello my CMHCD friends,

For today I am sharing our next challenge at Color My Heart Color Dare. You have a pick of at least three colors for our challenge. I would like to ask you to please identify your color choices in your blog post. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

Calm is the theme for this card. Nature scenes like these always seem to bring the stress level down. I love the challenge colors! To me, they looked very deep and dark but when I started using them I realized they are a kaleidoscope of bright and delightful colors!

Now for our challenge!

Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #442
I used all the colors!!!

Shawna Standish

The wood background is patterned paper with a retired SU Hardwood stamp stamped on top. The original patterned paper didn't seem to have enough visual texture; the hardwood stamp seemed to have solved that problem.

The scene was colored using alcohol markers. The coloring is nothing fancy, it was quick took only ten minutes to complete. It took me longer to choose the marker color than actually coloring it.
