The challenge at this week's Color My Heart Color Dare was to use all three primary
and three secondary colours, on a single project.
So, not quite the full rainbow of seven, but plenty to work with!
For my version, I used three pastel secondary colours, Amethyst, Key lime, and Taffy, and mixed them with more saturated primaries, Pacifica, Tulip and Honey. The largest squares are cut at 1" then 3/4" then 1/2," a bit bigger than on the original card, which creates a different effect. I had fun deciding which colours to stack on which. See if you can figure out the pattern!
I had planned to machine-stitch around the white border, to make it look like patchwork, but I have an actual quilting project on the go, so changing the thread and pressure foot on my sewing machine was too much work. I used the Close to My Heart ruler with guide holes to perfectly place the perforations to simulate stitching. The kraft paper card base is a 5" square.
The sentiment with the funky font is from the Paper Smooches set "Good Gab." I used Versamark ink and white superfine embossing powder from Paper Wishes.
You could have a lot of fun trying out different colour combinations for this design. Maybe after that quilting project is finally finished!
