So, it's Wednesday again so that means it's Color Throwdown and CAS-tastic Challenge day. The CTD colors were chosen by Danielle and are:
The CAS-tastic challenge was to make a one layer card. I'm still learning how to do them, but I love how a good one looks. I'll keep trying :) I'm using Fall-To Layout #90 and SCS Inspiration Challenge #232. This pattern was my inspiration piece.
OK, so let me say right up front that these colors were TOUGH for me! But that's what makes it a challenge, right? Right.
First of all, I made some score lines at the top and bottom of my card front. You can't really see the top ones because the ribbon covers them, but at the time I was scoring, I didn't really know what I was going to do ;-)
Then I masked the score lines so I wouldn't stray over them and stamped the three colors randomly, sorta like the inspiration pattern, using a stamp from PTI's Turning a New Leaf set. I added a pink gingham ribbon, some silver flat backed pearls, and stamped the sentiment in PTI Smokey Shadow ink.
Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play. 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 CTD93 so we can see your beauty all in one place. Hope to see you there!
