From My Hut to Yours–CTD #369


Thanks for joining me for this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge! My bestie, Tammy, has chosen these traditional Fall colors based on her gorgeous inspiration piece

swatch 369
Yesterday I had contemporary Christmas colors, today I have an unconventional scene with these Fall colors. You never know what direction my creativity might take me, LOL! I saw a tropical sunset with streaks of orange and burgundy when I saw these colors and the green for palm trees just fell into place. I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then did a watercolor wash with Peerless Watercolors on Ranger watercolor paper, then popped it up on foam mounting tape.


The images are from Tiki Party and Tiki Party Die-namics, also cut from watercolor paper, stamped with Black Licorice hybrid ink, and colored with Zig Clean Color Brush Markers before being popped up on foam. The sentiment is partially from Tiki Party and partially from PI Thankful Friends, stamped with Black Licorice hybrid ink. I finished off with some sequins to match my sunset sky.

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 CTD369 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd369 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!
