Color Dare 264 Believe In Miracles Card

It's time for another Color My Heart Color Dare challenge! This week's colors are Black, Crystal Blue, Pacifica, Sapphire, and White Daisy.

I played around with the "smooshing" technique for this card. To get the effect on the sentiment panel, I added Crystal Blue, Pacifica, and Sapphire inks to a 3x3 acrylic block, spritzed it with water, and "smooshed" it onto a piece of White Daisy cardstock. The focal piece is popped up with foam tape on a simple base, reminiscent of a piece of art hanging on a gallery wall. 

The results reminded me of the sky at night, so I added sparkles to twinkle like stars. A sentiment from the Stronger Together stamp set is heat embossed in black.

Take a look at all of the great sentiments included in this stamp set. Remember, Proceeds from the Stronger Together stamp set will be donated to the Red Cross to aid disaster relief efforts.

Ready to play? Just create a project using ALL and ONLY the colors in this week's challenge. If you don't have the exact colors, use the closest colors you have. Our color challenges are now open for two weeks, giving you more time and flexibility to create, share and invite your crafty friends to join us too.
