Thanks For Being You–CTD #292


Hi, everyone, and welcome to this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge! This week the lovely Miss Vickie is our host and she’s got another fun palette for us to work with.

swatch 292

My card started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Then I added a layer of Sweet Tooth card stock stamped with Linen Background and Encore Silver ink. The sentiment, from PI Just the Way You Are, was stamped on Steel Gray card stock with Versamark and heat embossed with fine detail silver embossing powder.

The newly released-on-it’s-own Gerbera Daisy Die-namics was cut from Razzle Berry card stock and has a metallic silver card stock center accented with Sour Apple card stock. It was adhered on top of a Leaf-Filled Flourish Die-namics, also cut from Sour Apple card stock. To finish it off, I added some Sequins Die-namics, cut from silver mirror card stock and colored with Copic markers.

Another sentiment and image from PI Just the Way You Are were stamped on the inside with Black Licorice Hybrid ink. I did a little fun coloring on the image.


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 CTD292 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!
