Color Dare #259 ~ Emerald, Goldrush, Pansy, Black and White with Gold

Check this out!
We've decided to change our color challenges from one week to TWO WEEKS!
This change gives you more time and flexibility to create and share and hopefully invite your crafty friends to join in the fun and join us, too! Winners will be announced at the close of each challenge.
New Color Palette Photos have been created so you can better compare and match colors. The rules remain the must use all and only the colors in the challenge. If you don't have an exact color you may substitute something close but don't add any  new colors to the palette. 
You can find all the details on the Color My Heart home page.

This layout was made using Pattern #3 from the new Make It From Your Heart vol. 3 book. All the details are there for you to create with: sketch, measurements, placement! The pattern papers are from the Cats & Bats paper pack. Isn't it amazing how you can make themed papers looks totally different! Nothing in these layouts suggests Halloween! 

I stamped the flowers on Watercolor Paper and painted them with a Water Brush and ink from the stamp pad lid. The stems were stamped in Emerald on the LIGHT side of the cardstock. In case you didn't hear yet our cardstock now has a light and dark side of the color now. Yippee! In the layout I used the light side across the bottom while the photo mats are the dark side.

  1. What a wonderful layout! I love the bold stripes and the added touch of softness with the flowers.

  2. Great layout. I love that you used both sides of the cardstock!

  3. Excellent vibrant and bold it.

  4. I love the intensity of the green on this layout. Those flowers are on my list of products to try - just haven't made it that far yet... This will look gorgeous with photos added!
