Color Dare Challenge #448


 This is another make for the

Do pop over to the Color Dare Challenge and take a look at my teamies' makes!

This is today's colour scheme 

I have used Almond, Desert Rose and Sage in my card - plus black, white and gold.
Basically my card uses a background - a pull from my Gelli plate. I put blobs of white gesso on the plate with drips of appropriate alcohol inks on each. After brayering this about I did the pull.

  1. White card blank
  2. Layer of black card with a strips of gold washi and background put together about a third of the way across and from top to bottom.
  3. Two rectangles of background matted on gold.
  4. Sentiment stamped directly - a Stampin Up stamp.
  5. Gold butterfly sticker.
  6. I then decided it needed some doodling...

The strip of gold washi doesn't show up too well in the photos.

I have used a sketch from The Sketchy Challenges and I will link this card there.

Hope you will join the Color Dare Challenge...

Happy Crafting!


  1. Ooooh I love how you created your own paper with the inks and gesso. Its really effective. Perfect adaptation of the sketch too. Your doodling just adds the perfect addition.

  2. I love your card, Susan! It's so delicate looking and very pretty. Great use o four colors, too.

  3. Super card Susan. I don’t have a gelli plate but they do fascinate me! X

  4. The doodling really brings it to life. Beautiful card!

  5. Don't think to pull out my gelli plate very often; but
    you have inspired me... very pretty and like the doodling too.

  6. Love the patterned panels you created! Beautiful card!
