Color Dare # 8

Hi and welcome back to Color My Heart color dare. It's great to have you. Sorry I had to be gone for a week, but I took a week of vacation after Convention. I'm still on vacation, but I will be back and going next week.

Congratulations to last week's winner: Lynn Darda!

Ruth's choice: Jody Gustafson!
Franny's choice: Lela N!
This week's color dare is:
Materials used:
Paper: Kraft Die Cut Card
Stamps: Card Chatter - Love
Inks: Pear, Sky, Smoothie
Other: Persnickety Journaling Spots, Dimensional Elements Hearts, Smoothie Baker's Twine

Lesson: When you add white to any hue, it lightens the color and it is called a tint or a pastel. These colors are bright pastels. These shades in relation to each other are called "split complimentary." This is when one color is combined with 2 colors on each side of the first color's compliment. In this case it is red, (green is red's compliment), green blue and green yellow.

Here is Franny's card:
Franny used Dotty for You paper that had Smoothie in it. She cut out the flowers in various shapes and sizes with AP, and stamped them with the Hooray Bouquet stamp set. The sentiment is also from Hooray Bouquet. I just love the layering on this card!

I'm giving bonus points this week if you find inspiration on Janette's blog. I actually found this color combo on her blog from a post about 2 years ago.

Here's what you do: Create a project using the featured colors. You must use Close to My Heart (CTMH) products to participate, but you may use other products as well. You will get bonus points if you use 100%, current CTMH products! Your project can be anything as long as there is paper in it. Examples are: scrapbooking layouts, cards, 3D items, altered items, ect. You may combine as many challenges as you want, but please make sure you use only the colors in our challenge. Feel free to add any neutrals in our color palette to your project.

Take a photo of your project, upload it to your blog or online gallery, and link your post up here. You must provide a link to your post, not just to your blog in general. Please include a link to our site and our challenge photo on your blog post. You have until Thursday @ 8PM to link your work. Thanks so much, and have fun!
