So I know you know because I keep talking about it, but Tax Season. Ugh. So yesterday morning I'm crafting away making something for the Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge featuring the CTMH Regatta papers colors and I wasn't quite finished when I had to get ready to go and I said... that's ok... I have until tomorrow... Thursday... um... would have been ok except it already was Thursday...lol! But luckily the Between The Folds challenge ALSO uses the colors of Regatta so although creating for the sake of creating is fun...it's even more fun when you participate in challenges... so I finished it up this morning and added some more things (since I was no longer strictly limited by the colors I changed it up a bit). I am LOVING my new CDD Picture Frame Die from the March release!
Added a few silver sequins and used some of the cute Regatta Complements that come on Kraft paper. Love these sentiments from CTMH Pirate's Birthday and the ship below.. so cute!
I also added some lines on my boat in a darker color and some brighter yellow distress ink to my sun. And I used my Craftin Desert Divas Outdoor Landscape Dies and The Sky's The Limit Dies for the waves, cloud and sun..
And a little Cashmere for the shell and a little gray for his belt. Don't you just love this little cutie from the Pirate's Birthday set from CTMH?
So... now I have to start concentrating on next week's Color Dare... because .. well.. that's the challenge, right?? Outside of your comfort zone... so check out both of these great challenges.. if you don't have the exact colors you can use what you have that's close so don't feel like you can't play if you don't own CTMH papers! (Although... CTMH papers are awesome and you should get some ... lol)
