Color Dare #265 ~ Bashful, Pomegranate, White Daisy and Black

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #265 we are challenging you to combine  BASHFUL, POMEGRANATE, WHITE DAISY, and BLACK with the Option to add SILVER.

With our challenges you have two weeks to participate which gives you more time and flexibility to create  – but please don’t wait for the closing date to submit your entry. Winners will be announced at the close of each challenge.
You may have noticed the new color palette layout. This was designed for better clarification of the colors. CTMH cardstock has the actual color on one side and the other side is a lighter variance of the same color.
This new palette photo will make it easier for comparison for matching colors if you don’t have CTMH Colors. Plus…the variance of the same color gives you a fair range for substituting similar colors so you can still join in all the fun.
The rules will remain the same (All and Only) the featured colors in our Challenge, neutrals will be specified and some colors optional.
I was unsure what I was going to do for this challenge… flowers… then I spotted it… flamingos!!
I used the September Animal House stamp set from Technique Tuesday along with some Close to my Heart dies – Oval and Ribbon.

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 #2635 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday October 26, 2017 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #253 we are challenging you to combine  Gold, White Daisy, Slate, Glacier, Willow, Tangerine & Poppy.
