You are Not Forgotten–CTD #333


Hey, everyone, welcome to this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge! Monika is our host this week and she’s chosen some sweet Spring-time colors.

swatch 333

I started with a Grout Gray card stock base, added a wonky Black Licorice card stock panel, then another panel created with Sweet Tooth card stock with white embossing paste spread through Small Brick Wall Stencil. After it dried, I sponged Grout Gray dye ink through the stencil to add some color to the back ground and popped it up on foam mounting tape. Next up is a LJD Forget Me Not Die-namics, cut from Sweet Tooth card stock and stamped with the coordinating image from LJD Forget Me Not with Lavender Fields dye ink, Daffodil dye ink, and Sour Apple dye ink. I popped that up on foam and added a strip of Sweet Tooth card stock stamped with the text image from the set, then overstamped the sentiment with Black Licorice dye ink. I popped it up on foam and finished off with some enamel dots, sequins, and clear gems.

A sentiment from LJD Words of Inspiration was stamped on the inside with Black Licorice dye ink.


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.
