CD 443 - Love Your Smile

Welcome to this week's Colour Dare challenge!

This is a fun challenge - essentially leading to a monochromatic (or very close to that) project. Using the colour wheel, you are to choose 3 colours that are side by side on the wheel. 

I chose yellow (Canary), yellow-orange (Sundance) and orange (Nectarine) for my card. 

I used several small scrap pieces from various paper packs to create the background. I cut them into 1" wide strips and then cut them on an angle. They were placed side by side to fill the font of the card. I bordered that in black and then die cut the words "I love". The bottom part of the sentiment was stamped with Intense Black and then I used 3 markers to create an ombre effect inside the letters. A few black bursts were added with a coloured bitty sparkle in the center of each. 

Come and join us at Colour Dare and show us how you interpret the challenge guidelines above. 

You have two weeks to link up your project. 

We can’t wait to see what you create!
