Greetings, friends! I am out on the East Coast of Canada this week, posting long-distance for the weekly Color My Heart Dare.
CREME BRULEE &
is the colour combo for this week.
One of our tasks while opening up our cottage was to stock up on honey from the HoneyDew Apiaries, just down the road in Canoe Cove. Gotta love the Island, so many road-side stands selling potatoes, blueberries, honey and so on, where you pick up your produce and leave your payment, on the honour system.

Close to My Heart does have paper and ink in "Honey," but Creme Brulee is also a sweet colour.
Hexagons are a huge trend right now, and while I don't have any six-sided stamps, I did dig out an old Creative Memories punch with two sizes of hexagons. I used it to make a bunch of hexagons from CTMH patterned paper (Elemental and Buzz'n Bumble) in Creme Brulee, and set them into a floral pattern onto some Saddle paper.
The background is Juniper patterned paper from an old paper pack, with some subtle flourishes. I stamped the Quick Cards--Bumble Bee image in Cocoa. I stamped the bee again on White Daisy paper with Cocoa ink.
Colour was added by picking up some pigment from water-colour pencils with a water-brush. I added some glitz to the bee's body and Liquid Glass to his wings, then cut him out and mounted him with foam tape to the card base. A few chocolate-coloured floral buttons, with some Bronze glitz finish the card.
So buzz on over to the Color My Heart blog to see some other pretty projects using Creme Brulee and Juniper, by the design-team queens. We'd love for you to join the hive this week. If you don't have the exact challenge colours, use as close as you can. Neutrals like brown, tan, black, white, grey and kraft are also allowed. Can't wait to see what you create!
