Color Dare #6

Challenges, they are fun!
This weeks Color My Heart Dare was to take an existing CTMH paper packet and add one (or two) additional colors.  We were also supposed to create a card that would work for another "sketch challenge".  I chose to do the Mojo Monday Sketch: Sketch #247, Round or Square!

I used the Footloose paper packet, and the June Stamp of the Month (Last day to order it--TODAY!).  I embossed the bird using white powder so it would stand out, and I used the Irresistibles Persnickety Journaling Spots (Z1734).  The "extra" color I used was Sorbet.  Making this a play on the primary colors.  Buttercup, Lagoon, and Sorbet (red-ish). Anyone want to guess what the little birdie told me?

This week's color dare is: Create-your-own Rainbow based on the color wheel.

We were charged with creating a card using all SIX of the rainbow colors.  While it was really fun picking out which six to use, it was hard fitting them all on one card (without just making a rainbow...).

I went with RED: Tulip, ORANGE: Sunset, YELLOW: Creme Brulee, GREEN: Pear, BLUE: Lagoon, and PURPLE: Gypsy.  These are some of my very favorite colors!

This photo shows a little more of the detail.  The sentiment (from C1503: The Best Things) is raised up using foam tape, stamped and mounted on a shape from the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  I used lots of my favorite embellishment: Sparkles! And finally the whole card is mounted on a piece of Tulip cardstock--which made it a little tricky to photograph!  Wish me luck in the weekly contest on Color My Heart's blog!

Color Dare #2

This week's colors were:  Pear, Topiary, Moonstruck, and Lagoon.  I was really excited as blues and greens are my favorite, and I LOVE Lagoon and Pear!

I used the June SOTM S1206, Life is Tweet.  And the pattern: Gallery, in the Wishes Idea Book.  I used the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge for the frame.  I'm not super excited about the way the Baker's Twine looks, I might make some changes there and re-post.  BUT I do love that cute June Stamp of the Month!  Hurry and get one this month!

Take two: (I think I like this one better)
