The Color Dare turns...#60!!!

It's not as bad as it sounds...I just like nice, round numbers!

Here's the color palate for this week's dare at Color My Heart:

GOLDRUSH
OUTDOOR DENIM
GYPSY
LAGOON
and optional 
COTTON CANDY 
These colours are featured in one of the new paper packs from Close to My Heart, Sarita. The patterns are rich in texture, based on beautiful Ikat fabrics. I chose to cut them into chevrons using a die from The Stamps of Life.

Next, I die-cut a label shape using Outdoor Denim cardstock. The sentiment, embossed with white powder, is from the December Stamp-of-the-Month set, Handle with Care.  It looked a little plain, so I rubbed on some color using Close To My Heart's pigment ink pads:
Neat effect, eh?

 Sarita is also has coordinating actual fabric, so I cut a strip of that for the top of the tag.
A final look at this card:

So! Off you go to the Color My Heart blog, to see some pretty creations by the other Design Team members. Then break out your inks, pens and papers and make something (card, lay-out or 3-D object d'art) in the challenge colours. Upload your creation to the Color My Heart site to share with us. We promise to comment, and you might just be chosen as one of the Color Dare Jewels!

Happy crafting,
Caroline

  1. Lovely card! I also love the clever title of your post--somehow 60 doesn't scare me as much as it used to LOL.

  2. This is gorgeous! I love those die cut strips of Sarita, and the colored inking on the blackboard is wonderful!
