H2H - Celebrate with a Colour Challenge!

Welcome to our last April challenge at Heart 2 Heart! 

This week, it is a colour challenge - so we are giving you a specific colour palette to use. The four colours to use are as follows: 
- Blossom
- Peacock
- Bashful
- White Daisy

 These are Close To My Heart colour names - if you don't have Close To My Heart inks or cardstock, use the closest colours that you have. 
The colour swatches are shown below for your reference (white is not shown).

I chose to create a card using CTMH's Make It From Your Heart - Volume 4. It's such a wonderful resource for card makers. 
I gathered together a variety of papers - patterned and solid - in the pink tones and settled on the ones you see on my card. The sentiment is from the April Stamp of the Month. I stamped it after rolling the edges on a scrap sheet of paper to remove some of the ink. I then "painted" around the left and bottom edges with the Bashful Shimmer Brush. The butterflies were coloured using watercolour pencils and the Clear Shimmer Brush. The details of both of these can be seen in the second photo. 

Come and join us at Heart 2 Heart and show us how you use this colour palette. You have until April 30th to link up with this or any of the April challenges.

  1. I thought the two different pinks were hard to combine, but you did an excellent job. Another beautiful card.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment - it truly makes me smile :)
