Color Dare #253 ~ Poppy, Tangerine, Willow Glacier, Slate and White....optional Gold

Welcome to the Color My Heart color challenge. We do a weekly challenge and pick the colors to get you started. If you don't have the exact colors you may substitute something close so you can still play along. But don't add any new colors to the palette! Each Friday you'll find a new color challenge so come back often!

For this challenge I used a sketch and papers from a couple different packs. The flower was created by making a water color wash on Watercolor Paper. Then I stamped on top where I wanted the colors to be positioned and cut it out. The little sparkled inside the sequins are clear so I used a marker to color them.
