Color Dare 311 ~ Ballerina, Saffron and Peacock

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #311 we are challenging you to use these CTMH Colors: BALLERINA, SAFFRON and PEACOCK with the option of GOLD.  You are able to use neutrals – Black, Grey, Brown, Kraft, Cream and White in your design but no other colors.  Also if you do not have exact Close To My Heart color you may use a close substitute.

I have been wanting to try our new shaker card thin cuts. So I jumped in….

For this card I used a couple of the pattern papers from the Boutique Paper Pack.  I also used the Grateful Heart – Cardmaking Stamp Set for the sentiment and butterfly. To color my butterfly I actually used the Saffron ink and Peacock ink with just a bit of water.  You can do this in on of two ways 1) squeeze the ink pad together while closed then us the ink on the top or 2) stamp the ink pad on your All Purpose Mat and then use your watercolor brush.   I also use pattern 16 from the Make It From Your Heart Volume 4.  I am in LOVE with our new Shaker thin cuts, Shaker Window Foam and Loose Sequins.

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 #311 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday October 4, 2018 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!

  1. I love this card SOOOoooo much. I love the peacock paper over the ballerina and then bringing in the Saffron on the butterfly was a great touch. The shaker cards look so so good. I can’t wait until my order arrives with all this stuff in it.
