Color Dare #432 ~ Photo Inspiration

Welcome to another week with Color Dare #432! This week we have an inspirational photo ~ Chihuly. BLACK, WHITE, and NEUTRALS are FREE

I have been wanting to try using alcohol inks after seeing all the artwork that people create using them. So I broke down and purchased some. Then I started watching YouTube videos to learn how to use them. I used a technique where I added ink to a piece of felt then dabbed it onto the yupo paper. I then used Alcohol blending Blending to blur the colors.

I used the one sheet of yupo paper to make these two cards. One is a floating shaker and the other is just on white card base.

This card I used a 4×6 flip flap which I trimmed down to make the shaker. I used the Iridescent Flower Confetti in the shaker. The Yupo paper was cut using one of the Fancy Borders Thin Cuts. The Thank you is a cricut cut.

The thank you was cut using my cricut and I used a few of the Iridescent Flower Confetti for accents. The Yupo paper was cut using one of the Fancy Borders 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 #431  or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday, March 4, 2021 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!
