Color Dare #239 ~ Eggplant, Canary, Slate and White

It's Friday so you know what that means.......a new set of colors to challenge you from the Design Team at Color My Heart! This week we're challenging you with Eggplant, Canary, Slate and White. If you don't have those exact colors you may substitute something close BUT don't add any new colors! Full details are in the post on the Color My Heart blog

These colors kind of made me think of pansies. Lucky for me, the Cricut Flower Market cartridge has a cut for pansies! Here is what I came up with for this color dare. The background is stamped with 2nd generation inks. I also used the Shimmer Brush-clear on the Slate part of the flowers. Once I placed the sparkles I thought they looked a bit too bright so I took my marker and colored them to blend in better with the flower center. There is still a touch of bling and dimension but it's more subtle now.

All products are Close to My Heart:
  • Stamp Sets: Sending Smiles, Line It Up (both part of the Flower Market Cricut Bundle)
  • Exclusive Inks: Eggplant, Canary, Slate

  1. love the card! I like how you randomly stamped the lined background!

  2. Love these pansies! Such a fun card.

  3. My first thought was pansies, purple and yellow, but couldn't get the grey in...but you did and it your bowl of pansies look fantastic.

    1. Thanks Sue. I think the Shimmer pen on the grey helped it work.
