Our Colour Dare Challenge for #462 is the colours of the Pumpkin Spice Scrapbooking Workshop Kit in a Tic-Tac-Toe grid (you can choose a row, column or diagonal line (or do all of the squares like me), you are free to use Black & White. When you are creating for more than one challenge please make sure your project meets our requirement. Most importantly - have fun! Go to the link for Colour Dare #462 and add your entry. When you submit your entry you must provide a link to your post, not just to your blog in general.

I pulled out cardstock in all the colours in the Tic Tac Toe I wanted to use my Slimline Celebration Cardmaking Workshop Kit, specifically the Fishy Greetings stamps and thing cuts and the Circle Cluster Thin Cuts.
I cut fish and seahorses out of Peach Cardstock, Shortbread Cardstock,
Paprika Cardstock, Papaya Cardstock and Nectarine Cardstock. Then I cut seaweed in Harbour Cardstock and the circle clusters in Harbour Glitter Paper.
Such a great way to use up scraps. Also I did some on the light side of the cardstock and some on the dark side of the cardstock. LOVE Close to My Hearts two-toned cardstock for variations like this!!
I pulled out a Slimline Card & Envelope, and put a Mink Cardstock background of 8 inches x 3 inches (the main slimline card is 8.5 inches by 3.5 inches).
I stamped them with Memento ink (similar to Intense Black Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad). I also stamped the little schools of fish & little sentiment directly onto the Mink cardstock using the NEW 1" × 1½" My Acrylix® Block.
I used Thin 3-D Foam Tape to pop up all the fish on top of the cluster circles and put the seaweed plants underneath. To finish off I used some Gold Glitter Gems, to use the centre square on the tic-tac-toe board. I'm really happy with how it finished off.
The only colour I couldn't fit into my card was Toffee so I didn't complete the whole tic-tac-toe board completely!!
I love the look of the Harbour glitter paper in the background of this card. So pretty sparkles!
I did so many fish I decided to do another card as well. Using the Pumpkin Patch papers and Papaya ink for the bubbles on the background and black ink on the sentiment. Pretty happy that I have so many fish stamped and cut in different colours because its really easy next time to just grab a fish and create something without having to get out my thin cuts and inks and bigshot machine. Proactive Cardmaking for the future!!
