CD 491 - A Happy Hello

Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge 491!

We have an inspiration photo for you this week. Choose at least three colours from the photo - black and white are free to use.

I decided to use the dark pink, light purple and green shades. 

The background was prepared first - there is a piece of cardstock behind the lattice that was covered with Diamond Stickles and then splattered with two shimmer brushes (Wisteria and Green Apple). Once that piece was dry, it was adhered behind the Cricut cut lattice. I also added a scalloped frame around the lattice component. 

The flowers and leaves were die cut from both the light and dark side of Wild Berry, Wisteria, Clover and Willow cardstock and layered together. I cut the "hello" from white cardstock and stacked it three times before adding it to the black shadow. A smaller sentiment was added above. Metallic thread in the same colours as the flowers and leaves was added and a black gem was placed in the centre of each flower. White Opal Liquid Pearls were added around the black flower centres. 

Come and join us at Colour Dare and show us how you use the inspiration photo above. 

You have two weeks to link up your project. 

We can't wait to see what you create!
