Brrring on the Joy!–CTD #370


Hi, everyone, thanks for joining me for this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge! Today Miss Vickie has a very fun color combo for us based on her very fun inspiration piece!

swatch 370
I started with a Stone Gray card stock base, then did a watercolor wash on some Ranger watercolor paper with Peerless Watercolors. I added Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics, the top layer popped up on foam mounting tape for dimension, and stamped the sentiment from BB Toasty Greetings with Chocolate Brown hybrid ink, then popped the whole thing up on foam.


Next I cut and stamped the images from BB Toasty Greetings and BB Toasty Greetings Die-namics using Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 110lb and Black Licorice hybrid ink, colored them with Copic markers, and popped them up as well. I finished off with some Pretty Pink Posh clear sequins and 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 CTD370 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd370 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 November Guest Designer, Karolyn Loncon!
