Autumn Butterfly–CTD #269


Hey, there, and welcome to this week’s Color Throwdown! This week Vickie is our host and she has a gorgeous fall palette for us.

swatch 269
I started with a Chocolate Brown card stock base, then added a Primitive White layer. To this I added a Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics die cut stamped with Woodgrain Background and Chocolate Brown ink. Then I stamped a couple of Washi Tape Die-namics die cuts with More Washi Patterns and Sour Apple ink And Orange Fizz ink. I stamped a butterfly, cut with LJD Blissful Butterflies, with LJD Blissful Butterflies and popped it up on foam. I finished it off with an Orange Fizz button and a Tangy Orange button, both tied with hemp cord.

For the inside, I stamped another sentiment from LJD Blissful Butterflies.


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.
