It has been quite a while since I have had the chance to create a project for the Colour Dare challenge and I have missed it! However, when I saw the colour challenge for this week, I knew I couldn't pass it up. I LOVE these colours together and Lagoon and Gypsy are two of my favourite colours in the CTMH palette. I HAD to do something!
So, after much thought, I decided to create a cascading card. With just three colours to work with, that presents an extra challenge because it places some significant limitations on where to place items. I pulled out all the papers I had in those colours - basic cardstock, glitter paper, Fundamental cardstock and patterned paper. There wasn't much in terms of patterned paper for sure... just one sheet from the old Skylark paper pack. However, the other papers gave me enough to do what I wanted. I also had some Lagoon flowers and some SU white pearls in my stash from many years ago that helped me out.
I used the Skylark patterned paper, the Lagoon Fundamental cardstock and the teal glitter paper to line the front sections of the card. That can be difficult to see in the photos so I took a few pictures - one straight on, one from slightly above, and one from the side. I used the purple glitter paper and the Gypsy Fundamental cardstock to create the flowers. The teal glitter paper was used to create the leaves. I cut a variety of flourishes from white cardstock. The sparkles were coloured using a ShinHan marker.
