You’re a Star–CTD #328


Hi, there, everyone, welcome to this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge! I’m hosting this week and I pulled my colors from this great pillow shown in the swatch.

swatch 328

I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, on which I stamped Houndstooth Background with Grout Gray dye ink in a distressed manner—I LOVE how that looks! Then I added my strips of color using the new MFT Ride the Wave Die-namics and Berrylicious card stock, Orange Zest card stock, Blueberry card stock, Limelight card stock, and Black Licorice card stock. After I got them all taped together and placement marked, I stamped the sentiment and the stars with Black Licorice dye ink, then popped the waves up on foam mounting tape. I finished up with some stars cut from glitter paper with Sun, Moon, & Stars Die-namics, adhered with my Quickie Glue Pen,

Another sentiment and wave were added to 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 CTD328 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 January Guest Designer, Jen Shultz and this week’s Guest Star Stamper, Flo!
