Sympathy Card ~ Color Dare #450

I love this Color Dare Challenge! The colors in this gorgeous peacock are a real inspiration! Pick at least three colors seen in the peacock photo and create any paper craft you like. Black and White are free to use and not part of the "at least 3 colors". 

I love this stamp set and felt it would be a good match for this challenge. There are so many ways to use this set! You can heat emboss and color or just leave uncolored. Monochrome would look nice, too. I chose to use a multi color look for my card using our TriBlend Markers.

With three tones of color in each marker there are all kinds of way you blend the colors. You get great results every time!

I added a doodled line around the edge, added some Glitter glue to the flower centers along with a piece of Shimmer Trim at the top and some sequins to finish the look. 

From time to time we all have a need to send a Sympathy card. There is nothing that says it has to be dark and drab. Celebrate the person with something pretty!

    Your teamie,

  7. such a beautiful card, I love how you chose a stamped image that had the half circle shape similar to the peacock itself as well as replicating the colours. A beautiful card and so thoughtful to receive something like that, in a time of sorrow. Thanks for everything you do for the Colour Dare Design Team.
