Color Dare 216 ~ Canary, Fern, Goldrush, Poppy, Peacock, Slate, Whisper and White Daisy

Welcome to a new Color My Heart color dare! Today we're challenging you with the colors featured in the Swan Lake paper pack. There is quite the variety of colors in this combo, isn't there!

I have to confess to something. I looked all over for my pack of Swan Lake paper only to discover I hadn't ordered yet! I was stumped for a bit as to what I was going to create without having all the colors conveniently displayed in the Swan Lake papers! After a few deep breaths I thought about the fact ALL those colors are also in the new Fundamentals packs and I had those on hand. I sorted out the colors I needed and went to work. The grey layer you see in the middle background is actually from Jeepers Creepers. I cut that to 11 1/2" square and glued it to a piece of black cardstock. I used the outer edge of the grey as a guide for placing my other square around the page! The letters at the bottom were adhered with Liquid Glass. If you're like me, you have a hard time getting just a tiny dot on small things and end up smearing some in places you don't want it to be! My solution to that was to cover the letters in Liquid Glass! It hid my smears AND gave the letters some dimension and pop! I also inked the edges of all the papers to define each square since they are right next to each other.

All products are Close To My Heart:
--Fundamentals: Enchantment, Whimsy
--Jeepers Creepers paper pack
--Cardstock: Black
--Exclusive Inks: Black
--Cricut Artbooking
--Liquid Glass
--Silver Sequins
--Journal Pen
