Make a Wish–CTD #275


Happy Wednesday! It’s Color Throwdown day and today Wanda has a gorgeous color combo for us to work with.

swatch 275
I started with a Kraft card stock base, then added a Sweet Tooth card stock layer embossed with Mini Chicken Wire Die-namics. Then I stamped out some patterned paper, using Black Licorice ink and LJD Darling Dots on Grape Jelly card stock, and MPD Damask Designs on Grapesicle card stock. More Grapesicle card stock with Grape Jelly ink and LJD Art Expression Text for the last one. From these I cut some Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics and layered them up. I cut out some MPD Dandelion Stems and Toppers Die-namics from Sweet Tooth card stock and stamped them with images from MPD Dandelion Wishes using Kraft ink, Gumdrop Green ink, and Black Licorice ink and popped them up on foam. I stamped the sentiment on a Pierced Oval STAX Die-namics cut from Kraft card stock with Black Licorice ink. I popped that up on foam, added some enamel dots, and it was done :)

On the inside, I stamped another sentiment from MPD Dandelion Wishes.


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.
