Artiste Cut Feathers for Color Dare #105

Welcome back to another Color My Heart Color Dare blog post where we challenge you to use Close To My Heart colors. We're looking ahead to Fall with this color scheme:  Sunset, Pear and Barn Red.

You must use all 3 of these colors in your papercrafted creation (it doesn't have to be a card!).  You may also combine your project with neutral colors such as white, black, greys, tans.  If you don't have CTMH colors yet you may substitute with a similar color.

Close To My Heart products used:
     Barn Red CS
     Sunset CS
     Pear CS
     White Daisy CS
     Black CS
     Artiste cartridge
     Artbooking cartridge
     Dot Embossing Folder
     Pear Ink
     Baker's Twine Paradise Assortment
     Barn Red Ink and sponge dauber for feathers

The feathers were cut from White Daisy CS with the Artiste cricut cartridge.  (pg. 78 Accent 3 shift 1 at 2.75" and 2 at 2.5").  I then sponged Barn Red ink on the feathers.  Hello is found on page 39 of the Artbooking cricut cartridge book and was cut at .5".

The dotted embossed squares were colored by painting Pear ink (ink an acrylic block and then spritz with water) onto the negative area of the embossing folder.  Squares were cut out after the paper was embossed.

Check out what the fabulous Color My Heart Color Dare Design Team has to inspire you. You have until Thursday, August 14 at 9 PM CT to enter your papercrafted creation here.  We look forward to visiting your blogs and seeing what you create with the colors Sunset, Pear and Barn Red.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!

  1. Your card makes these colors beautiful together even though I still really don't care for barn red. It's not a bad color by itself, but some colors were just never meant to go with it, I think. LOL Just my own musing for the day. I love all of the elements you put into this card. Those embossed pieces are so fun. The feathers look real. Great job!

  2. Love this, Marie. There is so much texture with the dot layers and the feathers!
