Relax–CTD #294


Happy Wednesday, and welcome to this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge! This week the fabulous Broni is our host and she has a lovely summer palette for us to work with.

Broni loves the beach, so I designed my card with her in mind—I know she would love to be sitting in one of those chairs with the water lapping her feet—come to think of it, so would *I*, LOL!

I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then trimmed down another piece of Sweet Tooth card stock to work with. I stamped the image, from Inspired by the Beach, with Black Licorice Hybrid ink and colored it with Copic markers, totally inspired by Broni’s inspiration piece. I airbrushed some sky, stamped the sentiment, popped it up on foam, added some enamel dots, and called it done!

Another sentiment from the set was stamped on the inside.


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 CTD294 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!
