Color Dare #251 ~ Sorbet, Lemon, Juniper, White and Black with optional Gold

It's Friiiiiiidayyyyyyy! Time for a new color dare challenge from the Design Team at 
Color My Heart! Don't you just LOVE Friday's!

Here is another color dare using some of the colors from the Prickly Pear palette with some other colors added. Our color palettes are very versatile so mixing and matching are easy to do!

I just love this little llama! I couldn't wait to put it to use. I was inspired by a card sketch from Skipping Stones so I got to work putting it all together! The blanket on the llama was colored with markers and ink with a water brush. The llama was cut out using the matching Thin Cut which makes it so easy and eliminates the fussy cutting! Hint: put a little wash under or behind your focal image to create a shadow and "ground" it. Then your image won't look like it's floating in mid air!

All products are Close To My Heart:
  • Stamp Set: Prickly Pear Cardmaking Bundle
  • Prickly Pear paper pack, Sequins
  • Exclusive Inks: Black, Sorbet, Sea Glass
  • ShinHan Markers: Pastel Green, Turquoise Blue
  • Cardstock: White Daisy
  • White Cards and Envelopes Value Pack
  • Water Brush
  • Gold Shimmer Trim
If you need a consultant I'd be happy to help.
If you'd like to BE a consultant I'd be happy to help with that, too!

Now it's your turn to create and share! Use the colors for this challenge to create any paper craft you like. If you don't have an exact color you can substitute something close but don't add any new colors. Full details are in the post on our home page. We LOVE seeing what you create!

I'm also entering this project into the Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenge.
Create something to share with them using Prickly Pear papers!

Happy creating!
