Happy Birthday–CTD #352


Hello, everyone, and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Tammy has given us a retro kinda color combo and I love it!

swatch 352

I think the images in MFT’s new Party Patterns are kinda retro-ish, too--match made in color Heaven. I started with a Grout Gray card stock base, then stamped up my Party Patterns using Sour Apple dye ink, Summer Splash dye ink, Grout Gray dye ink, Steel Gray dye ink. I “piped” the edge with Steel Gray card stock then popped it up on the base. The sentiment is part of one from For the Boys, stamped on Black Licorice card stock with Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder, then popped up on foam. I cut Brushstroke Birthday Greetings Die-namics from Sweet Tooth card stock and colored it in an ombre pattern with Copic markers and popped it up, as well. I finished off with come enamel dots and it was done!

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 CTD352 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd352 and #colorthrowdown on social media. 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 July Guest Designer, Valentyna Komisarenko!

  3. Barbara, this is A-MA-ZING!! Love how you've used colour and stamps, and mixed up the sentiments. Great card!

  4. Fantastic card Barb. Love those circles and dots... and the color arrangement looks awesome. The die-cut greeting is so pretty with the soft bokeh look.

  5. Fantastic design... you forced me to place a second MFT order because of this card, you know! All your fault! LOVE how you did the "happy" sentiment!
