Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #452

Hi everyone,

Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #452 is now live and I know I say this all the time, but it’s super!! πŸ˜‚

Make sure you use ALL three colours. Black, white and silver can also be used but are NOT part of the three colours. 

Initially I was a little stumped for inspiration as I wouldn’t normally put these three primary colours together, well not without a bit of lovely green anyway! But this is what I love about Color Dare, it makes me even more creative and I’m always surprised by what I achieve.

I decided to be bold and use a block of each colour. Notice how they are in the same order as the challenge graphic? OCD at work! I knew I wanted to use my beach hut stamp so I heat embossed in Wow! Opaque Bright white powder. The three huts are actually attached to each other on the stamp so I had to do a bit of masking and gentle brushing away of embossing powder to achieve the separated huts. I have splattered acrylic paint in the corresponding colours onto the card base before attaching the beach hut panels with foam pads. Finally I added the heat embossed sentiment strip to the right hand side. 

I loved the effect of this card so I created a second one along the same lines. 

I was a bit more generous with the paint splatters on this one!

I hope you feel inspired to join the challenge and you should definitely head over to the blog to see all the other wonderful creations from the Design Team.

Much love

  5. How fun! I love both of your cards and how simple but such a wow, simply following the three colors.

  6. I love how you took inspiration from the actual graphic too. The white embossing on those colour panels looks amazing. Such a great card.

  7. I love how you used the graphic as your inspiration! The beach huts are perfect for this color combo. The bold, black birthday sentiment really makes the colors POP!
