Color Dare #291 ~ Sapphire, Smoothie, Heather with optional Gold

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #291 we are challenging you to use (All and Only) these CTMH Colors: SAPPHIRE, SMOOTHIE  and HEATHER with the optional GOLD.  You are able to use neutrals – Black and White in your design. You can check out the rules HERE.

I am really liking the new Beautiful Friendship paper as I love blues mixed with pinks as to be honest I am NOT a pink loving gal.  So when I saw this Color Dare challenge I knew those paper would be great.

I created the two ton with the flowers from the Postcard Perfect Stamp Set by inking and stamping the flower once then rolling the edges back in the ink and stamping a second time.  This results in a first and second generation ink in one stamped image.

I did use ball embossing tool to work the center of the flowers which resulted in them curling a bit.  The Thanks is from a retired stamp set Variety of Thanks.  I decided to add a bit of gold with our Gold Shimmer Trim and the Gold Glitter Gems.

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 #291 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday. May 17, 2018 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!
