Color Dare #420 ~ Shades of Orange

Welcome to another week of Color Dare!  This week we have a good one for you.  This weeks challenge is all about the ORANGE! You can use any shade of ORANGE with BLACK, WHITES, ALL NEUTRALS, and METALLICS but that is all!!

I decided to try a technique that Close to My Heart had up on their blog this week.

To create the background I smooshed Spiced Marmalade Oxide ink on my All Purpose Mat. I then took my large watercolor brush and washed the ink onto Distressed Watercolor Paper. I then splattered it with Paprika Shimmer Brush. I used the a couple of thin cuts ~ Leaves Thin cuts and the Thanks Thin Cuts. I used Vellum, Paprika Cardstock and Cooper Ore paper.

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 #420  or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday, November 26, 2020 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!

  1. Your background looks great, I also love how you used the copper ore paper as well as the vellum for the backing for the copper ore.

  2. I love how you’ve used very light and very dark oranges together. And that copper, so luxurious! X

  3. Your background is perfect for showing off the leaf. I love the touches of Copper Ore, too!

  4. Bold, CAS and the leaf pops against the background and love the BIG bronze sentiment using the vellum as a backing. Beautiful card.

    Love your background…so easy but what a punch! Isn’t that “thanks” the best?
