Color Dare #245 "Little Dreamer" Paper Pack or Choose 4 of the Colors and Neutrals

Thank you to all the Talented Crafters who participated in last week’s Challenge. We are happy to have you sharing art in our Gallery. Inspiration of this color challenge comes from the color palette of the "Little Dreamer" Paper Pack. 




This week we are challenging you to use the color palette from the "Little Dreamer" paper pack. Our usual challenge is to use (All and Only) the featured colors, however, eight colors to combine are quite a challenge! So, for this challenge we are asking you to use at least 4 of the colors (excluding the neutrals) without adding new colors from the Little Dreamer palette: Blossom, Glacier, Lagoon, Lemon, Tangerine, Thistle with White Daisy and Black. Of course if you don’t have these CTMH colors yet you may substitute similar colors so you can still join in all the fun.

Here is some inspiration from our awesome Design Team. If you have a chance please stop by our blogs to see how we made these projects and leave a comment.

Now it's your turn. Take some time this week to create a project using these colors. If you don't have the exact colors, just use the closest ones you have. Next, take a picture of it and upload it to your blog.
