Happy Halloween–CTD #316


Hey, there, everyone! It’s time for another Color Throwdown Challenge! Today’s colors are brought to us by Monika—I really love that bright blue!

swatch 316

The inspiration piece is a Fall scene, but it said Halloween to me so that’s what I went with—my LAST Halloween card for this year, I promise :)

I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Next, I did a watercolor wash on some Ranger watercolor paper with a Pacific Point reinker from SU! I matted that with Black Licorice card stock and popped them both up on foam. Next I added a fence, cat, and tombstone, cut from Black Licorice card stock and Grout Gray card stock, using Spooky Scene Die-namics. Then I added a LJD Out on a Limb Die-namics tree, also cut from Black Licorice card stock and leaves cut from Lemon Drop card stock and Orange Fizz card stock. The sentiment is from LJD Primitive Pumpkins and was stamped with Black Licorice dye ink.

Another sentiment from LJD Primitive Pumpkins was stamped on the inside along with more leaves.


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 CTD316 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, including our incredibly talented October Guest Designer, Petra Swart and our Guest Star Stamper, Sue Rose!
