CD 493 - Woven Hello

 Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge 493! 

This week, there are three required colours. Black, white and neutrals are free to use. 

This challenge was difficult for me - these are not colours that I would use together and I really struggled to find an idea that worked. Finally I decided on a woven background. The cover plate was die cut in white and I wove strips of pink and orange in one direction. A single strip of yellow was woven in the opposite direction. That piece was adhered to black cardstock and then to a white card base. The sentiment was die cut in black and yellow to highlight the yellow cardstock. Clean and simple! 

Come and join us at Colour Dare and show us how you interpret this challenge.

You have two weeks to link up your project. 

We can’t wait to see what you create!
