Color Dare Challenge #57

I am so looking forward to spring this year. Springtime in Texas is just one of our prettiest seasons. I love this stamp from Deadbeat Designs with some of Texas' best known cities and towns that I found in a great little stamp store in Salado, Texas a couple of years ago. I cuttlebugged the star background and I stamped the bluebonnet and Indian paintbrush with a retired Stampin' Up set that I adore.
I used markers to color the ink onto the rubber and used the fun "huff and puff" method (or that's what I call it). The leaves stamp is a Studio G stamp from Michael's great collection of $1 stamps a while back.
I hope  you will join us in the Color Dare Challenge this week and add your link to Mr. Linky over on the color dare blog.
I look forward to seeing what you make these colors do for you. They are a great combination with all kinds of possibilities.

I can see why you love this stamp... so cool! I just taught my club the huff technique and they thought I was on something illegal! Your card is gorgeous as usual!
