Happy Is As Happy Does - Happy Birthday
Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #206: Join us in this week’s challenge combining Flaxen, Peacock, Poppy, Ruby, Saffron and Whisper (all and only)...these are the colors in the Florence PaperPak. Looking 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. You have until Thursday, August 18 to enter your project.
My Color Challenge was combined with the Heart2Heart Challenge "Copy This". Hop on by these challenges to see the DT's inspiration and many entrant projects.
Love the Florence Paper Pack...so this was an easy decision for my color challenge...I could have chosen the design paper which included all the colors; but decided to use the other papers instead for a more masculine card.
However, three changes and photos later, finally finished (all and only) colors on my card. My first mistake was using White Daisy for the first layer of the gears and my sentiment...only to find when I went to write my blog White Daisy was not one of the colors...so Whisper was added as a layer on the card panel, changed the Sentiment with one of the other design papers and colored the daisy white gear layers with a grey ShinHan alcohol-based pen. 2nd mistake, didn't have poppy on the card, so cut another gear and layered over the ruby gear at the corner of the sentiment. 3rd mistake, didn't have flaxen on my card...so another gear was cut and put next to the poppy gear. So...three sets of Photos later...this was the final answer (I mean card).
Close up of gears showing dimension and colors. Warning: If you don't use the floral sheet, make sure you have (all and only) colors on your card...don't make the same mistakes I did.
Added a few more gears in design papers on the inside of the card and left room for a personal note.
