Color Dare #204 ~ Eggplant, Flaxen, Sweet Leaf + Colonial White

Ready for a new color dare? Color My Heart has some really pretty colors for you this week: Eggplant, Flaxen and Sweet Leaf. If you don't have those exact colors just use something close.

I decided to watercolor the flowers after I used the matching Thin Cut. Don't you love those Thin Cuts! So easy to get your image cut out! For the background I just used a couple squares of cardstock. The tassel is a piece of Thick Twine folded over with the strands separated. HINT: a piercing tool is a great tool for this!

All products are Close To My Heart:
--A Bunch of Love stamp set
--A Bunch of Love Thin Cuts
--Ink: Eggplant, Flaxen, Sweet Leaf, Archival Black
--Cardstock: Flaxen, Colonial White, Eggplant, Sweet Leaf
--Paper Fundamentals: Enchantment
--Flaxen Thick Twine
--Gold Sequins
--Thin 3D Foam Tape

If you need a consultant I'd love to help you out!

Now it's your turn! Use these colors (or something close) to create a card, layout, papercraft. Then link to our blog. Details on how to join are in the sidebar on our home page. This color dare is open until Thursday at 9:00pm CDT.
