Watercolour Color Dare 101

Another Colour Dare Day - I had a great time last week visiting all the new members of the Design Team. I hope you got a chance to pop over to their blogs to see their creations. Today our colours are:
Rose Red
Old Olive
Early Espresso

I just love the way the Early Espresso looks when the edge is torn - gives it two different tones. I'm also having fun experimenting with the new Triple Layer Punches that are in the new Summer Mini! The flowers were done on watercolour paper with the Watercolor Wonder Crayons and Aquapainter.

Go ahead and take the DARE - When you post your creation be sure to link it to the Colour Dare Blog - and if you post to a public gallery, please remember to use CD101. Have fun - and here are the links to the rest of the Design Team so you can visit ...

Tonight the boys are in the last Battle of the Bands (Grant is the drummer - see this post for the last round). It may be a long's a good thing there's no school tomorrow! It could be a long night.....but a happy one.

Hope you have something to look forward today - and tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by!
