Color Dare #454 ~ Photo Inspiration

Welcome to Friday and another Color Dare Challenge! For Color Dare Challenge #454 we have a fun one for you. We have a photo inspiration for this weeks challenge, simply choose at least three colors from the photo plus Black and White are free.

I choose Purple, Blue and Green and decided to play with my alcohol inks.

I so love the new Butterfly Background Thin Cuts! I used it to cut a piece of yupo paper which I discovered requires a bit more pressure when using your CTMH Die Cutting machine. I ended up using -2 to successfully cut the Yupo paper. I then backed with Black cardstock.

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 #454 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, August 5, 2021 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!

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!
