Color Dare 194 Watercolor Card for Dad

After checking out the color challenge this week, I decided the colors Sapphire, Pacifica, Crystal Blue, White and Black would be perfect to make some masculine cards.  My card stash for guys is just about empty so I need to get creating some to have on hand.  I decided to use a background image from Artistry.  It is on page 7 and I think it was cut at 3 1/4" using Black Cardstock.  I cut off a few triangles to make a more varied shape rather than a square.  The background of the card is Watercolor Paper painted with three blue colors from Z3132 Watercolor Paints that are very close to the challenge colors.  For a bit more depth and dimension in the background, I stamped D1660 Ink Blot using Sapphire Ink.  The sentiment is from C1633 For Family and the DAD is stamped using B1484 Jennifer's Hand both in Sapphire Ink. One done and about 10 to go - I better get stamping...

 Hop on over to the Color Dare Blog for some more great inspiration!
