Chevron Hello–CTD #242


Hi, everyone, It’s Color Throwdown time and the super talented Lori has a really fun color combo for us this week. As soon as I saw these colors I knew what I was going to do!

swatch 242

I used the chevron image from MFT’s LLD Mod Borders and stamped it with Red Hot Ink, Lemon Drop ink, Sour Apple ink, and Blu Raspberry ink, then trimmed them out and popped them up on foam in the arrangement you see. I was totally inspired by Retro Sketches #57.

I stamped the sentiment from
LJD Pretty Poppies with Black Licorice ink and tied around a narrow black ribbon.

The inside has another sentiment from
LJD Pretty Poppies.


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 CTD242 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.
