Colour Dare 429 - Hugs to You

Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge 429!

This week, we have a selection of 6 colours where at least 3 must be used. I chose Ballerina, Candy Apple, Carolina and Mint along with White and Silver. 

The colours in the image are taken from the Perfect Match paper collection. I started by cutting strips of cardstock in various widths. They were attached in random order on a piece of acetate so it makes them look sort of like they are floating. The left side is a piece of patterned paper from the Perfect Match paper pack. I placed a strip of Silver Shimmer Trim between the two sections. 

A sentiment was chosen and the top part was embossing in silver while the bottom part was stamped and then die cut. I added some embellishing thread behind the top sentiment piece and also set that on some thin foam tape. The word HUGS was brushed with the Clear Shimmer Brush. 

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