Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #460

Good afternoon all,

Now, can someone please tell me how we are in Sept already?! For me the first part of the year started off slowly but when we got past June it feels like someone is accelerating us through to the end of the year! 

So here is the first Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge for Sept. It is another Crazy 8 which I think can be hit or miss for some of you but they really aren’t as tricky as the look. Just select four of the colours in the grid and craft away! 

We reference Close To My Heart colours but any brand is fine as long as you make a very close match. 

With this type of challenge I usually start off by picking out the colours of card and set about die cutting but I didn’t fancy that this time. Instead I used some new stamps from Honey Bee Stamps called Coffee Break and got out my closest matching alcohol markers. 

I have used the colours Smoothie, Canary, Peacock, Pebble. Almond and Fern. Once you get started it’s quite easy to get all four, or in my case six, colours on your project. Don’t forget it doesn’t have to be a card! Any paper craft project is acceptable. 

So I will leave you to head over the the Color My Heart Color Dare challenge #460 on the blog and check out what colours the rest of the Design Team chose to use. 

Since I have used a coloured card base for this card, I am going to enter it into Time Out Challenge #195

Much love
