Color Dare #451 ~ Crazy 8s

Welcome to Friday!! Fridays mean it is time for another fun challenge from Color Dare! This week we for Challenge #451 have a Crazy 8’s Challenge for you. This means you will choose at least 4 of the 8 blocks shown in the image below. Blacks and White are free.

I decided to go with Sapphire, Candy Apple, New England Ivy, Smoothie, Grey, Embellishments, plus Black and White.

I am totally on the Gnome obsessive list. I am loving our new gnome stamp set ~ Chillin with My Gnomies stamp and thin cuts. I colored my Gnome with my markers that matched Sapphire, Candy Apple, New England Ivy, Smoothie (for the pigment of skin but use my blender pen to subtract color) and Grey. I stamped the star from this stamp set on the hat to add more details. I stamped a few fire works to work with the star background paper which is from a retired Seasonal Mix-in. I added a bit of glitter and embellishment with the Steel Stickles Glue.

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 #451  or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page. You can also link up via Pinterest, Instagram, Flickr and  other forums. For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday, July 15, 2021 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!
