Charlotte Colors for Color Dare #179

Welcome back to another Color My Heart Color Dare challenge post!  This week we are challenging you to use just the following colors: Champagne, Slate, Whisper, Sorbet, Black and White Daisy--all of these colors can be found in the current Charlotte paper pack.

The flowers from my card were fussy cut from the Charlotte patterned paper and then Liquid Glass was applied to the flower centers and black leaves.  This card was made for a male friend of mine who is undergoing radiation treatment and I'm hoping it will brighten his day.

Here is  a side view to show off the glossy effects from the Liquid Glass:

You may recognize this as the current Atlantic Hearts Sketch #145:

     Champagne CS
     Slate CS
     Charlotte Paper
     Sorbet CS
     Black CS
     Memento Black Ink
     Kiss it Better stamp
     3D Foam Tape
     Liquid Glass

Please head on over to the Color My Heart Color Dare blog and check out what our fabulous Design Team has to share.  It always amazes me how we start out with the same color palette yet we each interpret it so differently!  We look forward to seeing what you can do with these colors also so please plan on posting your project in our gallery here.

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

  6. Boy, this is really pretty and the sorbet is so vibrant. I love this type of challenge to use a particular paperpak to meet the challenge because it shows all the flexibility and how different each DT member creates a card. And one of my favorite embellishments is liquid glass, it just adds that separate flavor.
