Cheers To You–CTD #284


Hey, there, everyone, it’s time for another Color Throwdown Challenge! I’m hosting this week and decided to shake things up a bit ;-) My color palette was inspired by the gorgeous hand made mug in the swatch—which provided a palette of cool colors. I hope you’ll take the challenge and play along with us this week.

My card is really CAS and uses Jumbo Abstract Art for the paint brush swipes. I stamped them with, left to right, Blu Raspberry ink, Grapesicle ink, and Memento Danube Blue on Sweet Tooth card stock. Then I cut out the word “cheers” using Celebratory Greetings Die-namics and stamped the sentiment, from Celebrate Big, with Black Licorice ink. Next I laid down a strip of Black Licorice card stock under the die cut negative and popped the stamped layer up on foam on a Sweet Tooth card stock base. To finish it off, I added some clear gems.

On the inside is another sentiment from Celebrate Big.


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 CTD284 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!
