Hello, all, and welcome to the first Color Throwdown Challenge of 2014!! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas (or whatever holiday you celebrate) and I’m wishing everyone a very Happy New Year! My girl Tammy is the host for this week and has chosen a rockin’ color palette to get us off to a great start this year!
I decided to go mostly white and add the colors for accents, more or less. I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then, on a trimmed down sheet of Sweet Tooth card stock, I stamped a clock face and hand from MPD Timeless with a new color of ink from MFT this month, Grout Gray, then I over stamped that with a sentiment from the set with Steel Gray ink. I cut some First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics flags from more Sweet Tooth card stock and stamped images from LJD Spring Backgrounds, Washi Patterns, and More Washi Patterns using Steel Gray ink, Blu Raspberry ink, and more Grout Gray ink. I stitched them onto the layer, popped it up with foam tape, and finished off with some matching sequins.
On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from Celebrate Big – December’s Free With $60 set that will be available on it’s own after the January release on January 7th at 10pm.
And that’s it from me! 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 CTD273 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, including our December Guest Designer, the awesome Linda McClain from Catered Crop!
AND, we’re excited to announce an addition to the design team—Monika Davis! Please help us welcome Monika to the team—we’re looking forward to seeing all the gorgeous creations she will bring to the Color Throwdown!
