HQCB Color Heart Challenge #4 using a Dark Blue Heart and lots of dark blue on project

 Heartfelt greetings, crafters! Welcome to the HQCB Color Heart Challenge #4!

Join me on this quest to see a dark blue heart on your entry PLUS it needs to have a lot of dark blue color shades used in it, too. (keep the percentage to 60-99% dark blue)

This challenge runs from 12:30am Central time/Chicago or 6:30am UK on May 28, 2022 and will end at the same time stated on June 13, 2022. 

Color Heart Challenge #4:

*have a dark blue heart shape 


*use lots of dark blue shades of color on the project

The Color Heart Challenges since #2 have changed slightly from # 1 and #2 and I hope they are changes for the better and make it easier for a wide range of craft formats and skill levels. There are rules to review in the sidebar.

I've also created a Facebook group for HQCB and FQCB fans called:

Heart's Quest and FarmQuest Challenge Blogs Fans Group. 

And if that isn't enough, there is a page option for a new HQCB Valentine's Day Cards Challenge Theme. Look in the sidebar to access that. Won't that be fun to get at least one Valentine's card made each month to get completed ahead of the special day!!!

Welcome, Guest Designer Deanne Clarke-Saunders!!!! She's creatively brilliant and always has such fabulous projects! She's supported both HQCB and FQCB from day 1 which means a lot to me. Let's read what has made her heart happy:

My name is Deanne Saunders. My hubby and I live in Paradise,
Newfoundland Canada. I was an elementary teacher for 23 years but retired early. I am now an Early Childhood Educator (couldn’t stay away from the kiddies!!). I have always enjoyed playing with paper, scissors, glue, and ESPECIALLY crayons and pencil crayons, ever since I’ve been a small child. I just couldn’t stop playing, so I continued by scrapbooking and card-making! I love it!!! My hubby calls me a paper hoarder. He just MAY be right, but I’d never tell him that!!! A man doesn’t need to know he’s right!!! Haha!


Deanne's amazing card:

What a terrific card for a rock-n-roll enthusiast!!! Indeed! Let's all rock on and look for dark blues in our stash supplies that will help you put your creative spin interpretation on Color Heart #4 challenge using dark blue color tones. 


Inspiration project #1 from HQCB owner, Becca S--dark blues birthday card=

A scrap of a white and black buffalo plaid patterned paper from The Paper Studio was altered with a dark blue marker to fill color over the solid white parts. Navy blue pearls accent the plaid and 1 on the heart. A 2001 Stampin' Up birthday stamp for the simple sentiment. An old patterned paper scrap with a teal background and 2 dark blue 'flowers' was selected to cut out the heart. The blue background paper and black cardstock base are also old scraps. Simply sweet.


Use this Inlinkz tool address to participate (shown below). At the end of the competition, Top 3 will be selected for bragging rights. There is a Top 3 Color Pursuit Achievers badge located at the very bottom of the blog page whenever your entry gets picked. 

For a few of the early challenges to get blog recognition and participation built, I will be offering a heart theme supply incentive prize to entry #10. 

Each artisan may enter 3 unique entries and there are lots of acceptable formats to attract a wide range of creative styles!

May your creative heart prompt you to go on that quest to find dark blue color items in your stash.

Thank you so much for being part of the HQCB artisan endeavor!
