CD 489 - Pretty Little Flowers

Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge 489! 

It's a tic-tac-toe board this week - choose at least one row, column or diagonal line. You can use other colours but they must be from the grid. 

I used the diagonal line containing Desert Rose, Sage and Gold plus Ballerina and Rosemary. 

The flowers were stencilled using the four colours listed above (minus gold) and die cut. I decided on a Rosemary card base as it wasn't a competing colour with the leaves. I die cut a scalloped mini slimline outline from Desert Rose glitter paper and adhered the flowers at the top and bottom. I added a second piece of Rosemary cardstock over the centre section of the card on which the gold foiled sentiment was placed. I brushed the flower centres with a clear shimmer brush and added gold gems to each flower. Some gold metallic thread was added under some flowers as well. 

Come and join us at Colour Dare and show us how you use the tic-tac-toe board shown above. 

You have two weeks to link up your project. 

We can’t wait to see what you create!
