CD 389 - My Sunshine

Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge #389! 

It's another tic-tac-toe board this week - my favourite type of challenge with this design team! 

Please note that you must make a line or column using three colours although you may also add additional colours FROM THE GRID. Black and white are fine but no other neutrals are permitted.

I chose to use the left column of Candy Apple, Sage and Sapphire. 

I created a background using alcohol inks - red and blue. I used that for the main background after mounting it on all three colours. A Sage design paper was selected and I mounted all pieces on either one or two additional pieces of cardstock. The flowers and leaves were stamped, coloured and die cut to add above the banner. I brushed the definition lines on the flowers with the Clear Shimmer Brush. I honestly wasn't sure about this colour combination but I really like the end product!

Come and join us at Colour Dare and show us how you use the grid shown above.
