Hello You–CTD #353


Hello and welcome! It’s time for a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Vickie has a very fresh and summer palette for us this week, based on her cheerful inspiration piece.

swatch 353

I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then, on a piece of Ranger watercolor paper, I added splash of color using my Zig Clean Color Brush Markers and some splatter using Grape Jelly dye ink. I added some Wild Greenery Die-namics, cut from Jellybean Green card stock and Gumdrop Green card stock, then stamped up some blooms from Desert Bouquet on Sweet Tooth card stock and fussy cut them out. I arranged them on the card from and added a sentiment, from LLD Friend Request, stamped on Black Licorice card stock with Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder, popped up on foam mounting tape. I finished the sentiment using a die from Love & Adore You Die-namics, also cut from Black Licorice card stock three times and the copies adhered together for dimension. I finished off with some enamel dots.

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 CTD353 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd353 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!
