Color Dare #330 ~ Tic-Tac-Toe ~ I Heart Us

This week we have another Tic-Tac-Toe Color Dare Challenge for you.  This week for Color Dare #330 it will be using the CTMH color palette from I HEART US. Please use and identify the three colors in a row of your choice; however, we will allow any or all other colors from the Challenge Board to be included. You can check out the rules on our blog.

I decided to go diagonally with Pixie, Bluebird and Lagoon.  I added in Black and White as my neutrals.

For my card I decided to use the Sponging and Droplet technique with was recently shared on the Close to my Heart Blog. I also used the I Heart Us Cardmaking Stamp Set.

For the background I sponged Lagoon, Bluebird and Pixie onto a piece of White Cardstock.  I then spritzed it with the Spritz Cleaner and also placed larger droplets by unscrewing the top.

I used a bit of the Silver Embellishing Thread and the Silver Glitter Gems. I stamped the leaves with Lagoon ink on Lagoon paper and Versamark ink on Lagoon then used Clear Embossing Powder. The flowers are colored with Ink and Watercolor brushes.

The final touch was to use the Clear Shimmer Brush to ad a bit of sparkle to the flower.  I realize it is hard to see in the photos.  I also used the Stitched Square Thin Cuts.

Now it is your turn to create! Just create a project (card, layout or other craft project) using this weeks colors.  Then link them to the Color My Heart Blog ~ Color Dare #330 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday, February 28, 2018 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Color Dare #329 ~ Love of Color

Welcome to another week of Color Dare!  This week we are doing another Love of Color challenge.  We have chosen a color pallet for you with six colors.  How to play… you will design something using at least 3 of these colors. Please note Grays and Whites are free but no other colors.

I chose to use Peach, Smoothie, Mint, Linen and a touch of Gold.

I have been wanting to play with our new Stitched Quilted Thin Cuts. So I though this would be the perfect time to give them a whirl.  I used mostly cardstock – Linen, Smoothie, Mint and Peach.  I did use a pattern stamp set to stamp the lighter side of the Peach Cardstock. I really do love the fact our cardstock has the lighter shade on the reverse of the cardstock.  I did use the mint pattern paper from the I Heart Us paper pack.

I added a touch of gold with the gem in the center.  The happy birthday is from Lawn Fawn.

Now it is your turn to create!
