Hi, everyone! Welcome back for a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Broni is our hostess this week and she has picked some great colors for us based on her inspiration piece.
Since this has a coastal vibe I went coastal too :) First I did a watercolor wash background with Peerless Watercolors on Ranger Watercolor Paper and set it aside. Next I stamped Wave Background on Sweet Tooth card stock with Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder. I cut the opening with Inside & Out Stitched Oval STAX Die-namics and proceeded to build my scene.
I cut my sand from Latte card stock with Ocean Waves Die-namics and adhered it to the background and popped the front up with foam mounting tape on top. The rest of the elements were cut with Beach Scene Builder Die-namics and added to the scene. Card stock colors are listed below. To finish, the sentiment from PI Beach Day was stamped on Black Licorice card stock cut with Blueprints 27 Die-namics with Versamark, heat embossed with white detail embossing powder and also popped up on foam.
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 CTD443 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd443 and #colorthrowdown on social media. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week, including our incredibly talented May Guest Designer, Amy Tsuruta!
