FIRST ... a special shout out goes to my mom. Her garden(s) are truly tremendous ... every single day. These pictures made the color dare I'm about to describe come together.
Color Dare #7 from Color My Heart is the most daring so far ... well, in my opinion.
My lifetime favorite color is green. I really can't remember when it wasn't. The two colors I dislike the most in the whole color wheel are orange and purple. When the challenge was to use all three secondary colors I considered passing. BUT I was the winner of Color Dare #5 ... Rainbow. I was asked to create a sample for this particular challenge. Who would say no to such an honor??
Here's my sample. (AND I actually love it - don't tell)
This is an all card stock layout using Close To My Heart's Topiary, Goldrush, Sunset & Petal. I also used Sunset ink. I'm so thankful for my CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge. There are soooooooo many flower options. In this case I cut one large circle of flowers at 11.5 inches. (for those with the cartridge it's <square5> shift with the Font Layer key selected) I sliced it up into the three different parts you see here. The rest of the flowers are cut from scraps in a rather random method. (that's how I roll ... random) The edges are sponged with Sunset ink. AND of course there was a bling attack going on as well.
Red(pink) + Yellow = Orange
The same thing worked with the bling. It's impossible to see in the photos, but I inked the bling in both purple and orange. It's subtle, but it sticks with the entire theme. Three years ago (before I met CTMH) I thought ink came in 5 colors ... black, brown, red, green, & blue. hahahahahaha!!! Since I have almost 60 CTMH colors now I'm entertained by my ignorance. What did I do before? Now I have power to color match almost anything.
Here are some close up shots of the two pages separately ...
