Colour Dare 274 - Just for You

Welcome to a new year at Colour Dare! This is the first post of 2018 and we are so glad to welcome you back! 

You will notice that the colour palette is arranged a little bit differently - it is done in a way to show you the colours in a simpler format without being so overwhelming. Black and white are standard with all our challenges unless otherwise indicated. Please make sure to read any notes that are under the palette to be sure that you are following the rules stated with each of the challenges. 

 I love the new Chelsea Gardens paper pack and since Glacier is found within that paper pack, I wanted to capitalize on that. I used the Glacier striped paper and I stamped my flowers and the sentiment in Charcoal. I used the Rose Embossing Folder but I inked it with Charcoal ink first to make the background Charcoal in colour. Bashful Glitter paper was a perfect touch to add some shimmer to my card. The flower and greenery were coloured using ShihHan markers in matching colours. 

The design for my card was taken from the brand new Make It From Your Heart Volume 4 - 
Card Making Guide. It is based on Pattern #23. 

Join us at Colour Dare and show us how you use this colour palette to design a project. You have two weeks to link up your project - due date is Thursday, January 18 at 10pm EST.
