You Are My Anchor–CTD #450

CTD450_2017jul5


Hello and welcome to another Color Throwdown Challenge! Today’s bold palette is brought to us by Wanda, and is based on her gorgeous inspiration piece.

I went with the nautical theme but in a different direction. I started by creating my background using Peerless Watercolors on Ranger Watercolor paper, and splattered some water droplets using a Mini Mister. When that was dry, I used Copic Opaque White to create the moon glow on the water, stamped the sentiment from You Float My Boat, and popped the background up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base using foam mounting tape.

I added a moon, cut from Sweet Tooth card stock with Tag Builder Blueprints 6 Die-namics, and stamped with Distressed Patterns and Gravel Gray dye ink and Cement Gray dye ink. I added Puffy Clouds Die-namics cut from Grout Gray card stock and the boat from You Float My Boat 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. 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 CTD450 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd450 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 July Guest Designer, Tracey McNeely!
