Hi there and welcome to this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Lori has a fun combo that I used for a Fall-themed design.
I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Then, on a piece of Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 110lb I stamped the leaf image from Blissful Blooms over and over with Black Licorice hybrid ink, then colored them in the challenge colors with Copic markers. I thought it needed a little something else, so I overstamped with Burlap Background and Natural dye ink, more lightly stamped in some areas, then popped it up on the base with foam mounting tape.
Next I added the sentiment, from part of one from LLD Soda Pop, stamped on Black Licorice card stock with Versamark, heat embossed with white detail embossing powder, and popped up on foam. To finish off, I added a LJD Scribbles Die-namics cut from Kraft card stock, and the word “thank” from Words of Gratitude Die-namics, cut from Black Licorice card stock.
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.
