Color Dare #127: Black & White with Indian Corn Blue & Silver

Welcome to a new year of Color Dare Challenges from Color My Heart.  Each Friday the design team announces a color palette for you to use to create your project.  You can create any type of project you'd like, as long as you use the chosen colors.  If you don't have the actual Close To My Heart colors, just use a similar substitute.




Color Dare #127 - Black & White with Indian Corn Blue & Silver


I've been having a lot of fun playing with my Artfully Sent Cricut Collection (Z3017).  There are so many great images to choose, from fun and simple to WOW!
How will this week's color combination inspire you?   Visit Color My Heart for more information about the challenge, get inspired by the design team, and upload your project.  I hope you'll join the Color Dare!

Color Dare #125 - Snowhaven: Cranberry and Glacier + Whisper, Black, & White Daisy

Welcome to a new year of Color Dare Challenges from Color My Heart.  Each Friday the design team announces a color palette for you to use to create your project.  You can create any type of project you'd like, as long as you use the chosen colors.  If you don't have the actual Close To My Heart colors, just use a similar substitute.

We have an important change for 2015... neutrals will be included in the weekly color combinations. That means you may not add random neutral colors to your projects. You must use ONLY the colors specified. However, we will allow black and white, unless otherwise specified.

There are some really great color combinations this year, so check in every week for a new challenge.  I hope you will join the fun!



Color Dare #125 - Snowhaven: Cranberry and Glacier
+ Whisper, Black, & White Daisy




It's been a very cold week in the northeast.  Instead of complaining why not get some enjoyment from the season by combining beautiful winter-themed paper with a fun project?  I decided that an explosion box card was the perfect showcase for these fun snowflakes.
How will this week's color combination inspire you?   Visit Color My Heart for more information about the challenge, get inspired by the design team, and upload your project.  I hope you'll join the Color Dare!
