Wednesdays are such fun around here—combining the MFT sketch and the Color Throwdown colors makes card making easy—usually! This week my girl Broni has chosen the colors and they were a REAL challenge to me!
And here's the sketch--another fun one from MFT! Which I flipped, of course, LOL. You can find the sketch on the MFT blog and also in the MFT forum on SCS, as well as in the weekly newsletter. The Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.
And here’s my card. I’m using MFT’s new Just My Type Die and Stamp Set (yes, again, because I love it!). I decided to keep it relatively simple and use a lot of white space to balance these strong colors.
I used the Open Zig Zag Border Die-namics die for a white border, topped it with some black lace and, although you can’t really see it here, there’s a green panel under the typewriter, following the sketch. Some Kiwi Kiss ribbon, a Basic Gray flower, made with the Pretty Posies Die-namics die, and it was pretty much done. I also added some lime Dew Drops to bring attention to the Zig Zag border.
Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the Color Throwdown challenge. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD142 so we can see your beauty all in one place. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week!
