Awesome

Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #191Join us in this week’s challenge combining the colors, Colonial White, Sorbet, Sunset and Poppy (all and only) until Thursday, May 5, 2016 to create and link up your project ...look forward to seeing your inspirations for this color challenge. We encourage you to use CTMH products; however you may use any products to participate using closest to colors...and still join in the fun. 

Combined the Color Challenge to the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #156 and SweetSketch Wednesday was also a very similar sketch.  Please hop by to see the many DT member inspirations and join in the challenges...you still have time.  

 


I wasn't real excited about this color combination, but I do like each of these colors separately...so how do I bring them all together.  Well, my concentration was on poppy, using the other two colors as accents, and colonial white to break between each of these colors. 

Since there were not too many design papers that pulled me into the color combination, I resorted once again to Paper Fundamentals and Cricut Design Space for die-cuts.  


The sun ray background was a modified version of the half sun beam.  Did some slicing, copied and reversed image, more slicing, lined up on top for full sunbeam, attached and welded.  Cut two panels of full sunbeam and adhered to background.
