CD 477 - Distress Oxide Starburst

Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge 477 and the Year 2022!

This is the first challenge of the new year and is posted a day early since Colour Dare challenges begin on Friday. This week, we have an inspiration photo for you. Choose at least three colours from the photo and black and white are free to use. 

My focus went to the bold colours - pink, purple, blue and green. I used four Distress Oxide inks to blend a background. I splattered water mixed with Perfect Pearls on that piece to create a bit of shine. The starburst was die cut several times and stacked before placing it on a card base. The inside pieces were fit inside the openings. I stamped a flower and leaves and coloured them in the same colours as the inks. Some green metallic thread was added behind the flower and the sentiment was placed on an angle. The last step was to add coloured gems in the same colours as the inked sections around the card and the flower was brushed with a clear shimmer brush. 

I created two backgrounds when I was preparing this project and decided to turn the second one into a shaker card. The sentiment was embossed in black and coordinating sequins were added inside and around the shaker.

Beautiful Alyson. I love how you have matched not just the colours but the starburst is like the peacocks tail too. X

Lovely card, Alyson! I love how you blended the colors and turned the artwork into the starburst. (Your shaker card is equally beautiful.)
