Colour Dare 297 - Just Because

Welcome to another Colour Dare Challenge! 

This week, it's an interesting colour combination... Glacier, Nutmeg and Sorbet. Being honest, two of these aren't my favourite colours and I rarely use them (Sorbet and Nutmeg) but together, they look really good because they both have orange undertones. Glacier has a blue undertone (obviously) and they work remarkably well as a group of three - I was very surprised. 

I embossed a piece of Nutmeg cardstock using a deep woodgrain embossing folder - unfortunately, that barely shows up in the photo. The Glacier piece along the bottom was punched using a border punch that I have had for ages and not used in years! I Cricut cut the doily behind the flower and I brushed the lines of the flower with the Clear Shimmer Brush. This card is so much prettier in real life than in the photo.

Come and join us at Colour Dare and show us how you use the colours shown above. You have two weeks to link up your project.

  1. Love your card! The lacy details really set a nice stage for your flowers.

  2. Beautiful! I love the doily behind the flower and how it ties in with the glacier die cut.
