Color Dare #274 Just For You Card

It's time for another Color My Heart Color Dare challenge! This week's challenge is to use only Charcoal, Glacier, Bashfuland optional Silver.

I pulled out my Basics Fundamentals, Bashful Glitter Paper, and Vellum Paper for this challenge. The Chelsea Gardens- Cardmaking stamp set was still sitting out on my work surface, so I inked it up again for this card. I used the clear shimmer brush to pick up a small amount of Glacier Ink to add color to the butterflies. The sentiment is heat embossed with silver embossing powder.



When I started designing the card, I used our Basic Circle Thin Cuts. I felt like the edges needed something, so I cut a new circle using a stitched die. A few Bashful Pearls finish off the design.


I stamped a couple leafy stems inside and added another small glittered butterfly.



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 open for two weeks, giving you more time and flexibility to create, share, and invite your crafty friends to join us too. You have until 10pm EST Thursday, January 18th to enter! I can't wait to see what you create!


Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I'm glad you showed a side view of your card o show the detail on the vellum - sometimes the front view of a card just doesn't catch those tiny details. This card is stunning! I love the way you used just a tiny bit of Glacier on the butterflies but focused more on the Bashful and Charcoal. The vellum is a perfect touch - keeps it soft and gentle. WOW!

    1. Thank you, Alyson! I have the hardest time capturing the tiny details sometimes. I love the look of Bashful and Charcoal together. The butterflies were the perfect way to add the Glacier.
