 Hello my CMHCD friends,

For today I am sharing our next challenge at Color My Heart Color Dare. You have a pick of at least three colors from the picture provided and remember, black and white are free! I would like to ask you to please identify your color choices in your blog post. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

I decided I wanted to follow the bird theme for this card. I stenciled a feather background and used a cute little bird sitting on the sentiment. I colored the bird with Crayola colored pencils! I am in the process of cleaning and organizing my craft space. Around the mess, I saw the Crayola pencils and used those instead of grabbing something else.

Now for our challenge!



Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #454
I used mostly purples, blues, and pinks!!!

The circles were embossed using iridescent paper glaze at each of the corners for balance. It seemed to fit nicely with the font of the 'hello' sentiment.

I triple stacked the sentiment using this pale pink cardstock. However, it did look a bit bland against the paper glazed dots so I added some Wink of Stella to the 'hello'. It added just enough sparkle and with a few gemstones, my project was complete. My craft area? Well, that is another story!

Well, thank you again for taking the time out of your busy day to visit my corner of the internet. I do hope you will join us at Color My Heart Color Dare and play along.

Lots of good crafting vibes are headed your way. I hope you all have a fantastic day and please stay safe and stay healthy. Until then take care and we will see you soon!

Cassettes

 Hello All,

Welcome to another challenge at Color My Heart Color Dare! For this challenge, you must use the colors that are specified. Remember black, white, and silver are free. 

So what does this color palette spark? An occasion, an image, or maybe something in nature? For me, it brought back memories from days gone by. The years of mixtapes and retro color; yes friends, the 1980s! Here is my card for today, enjoy! 

Stripes using this color palette remind me of the 80's mixtapes. Remember when a song came on the radio and you pressed play and record at the same time but of course, the DJ, was always talking at the beginning of the song.. UGH! Oh, what we had to endure as kids.

I colored swatches on a piece of scrap paper in the same colors as the stripes. I then die-cut the stars and hearts using the swatches. This way I had a perfect color match between elements.

The cassette tape is popped off the page by dimensional tape to give it a more realistic look. Another element is the piece of acetate where you see the tape. Remember winding up your cassette with a pencil?

Well, thank you again for taking the time out of your busy day to visit my corner of the internet. I do hope you will join us at Color My Heart Color Dare and play along.

Lots of good crafting vibes are headed your way. I hope you all have a fantastic day. Until then take care and we will see you soon!
