Hope You’re On the Mend–CTD #326


Hey, there, it’s time for this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Vickie has a really sweet color combo for us based on an awesome inspiration piece!

swatch 326

I really love this color combo but apparently I spaced a bit on the blue, LOL! There IS a little dark blue and that’s my story!

I started with Sweet Tooth card stock base, then, on more Sweet Tooth card stock I stamped Damask Background with Limelight dye ink, matted it with Blueberry card stock and popped it up on foam mounting tape. On a smaller piece of Sweet Tooth card stock, I turned up a corner and stamped Damask Background with Blueberry dye ink, also popping it up. I added the sentiment, from Get Well Wishes, on Blueberry card stock with Sweet Tooth pigment ink and heat embossed with clear detail embossing powder, popping it up, as well. I cut Prima Donna Petals Die-namics from Ripe Raspberry card stock, Cotton Candy card stock, and Blueberry card stock, adhering it on top of Leaf-filled Flourish Die-namics cut from Limelight card stock. I finished off with some sequins and clear gems.

Another sentiment was stamped on the inside with Blueberry dye ink on Blueprints 20 Die-namics layers cut from Blueberry card stock and Sweet Tooth card stock.


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.
