Season’s Greetings–CTD #372


Hi, everyone, thanks for joining me for this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge! I’m hosting this week and am totally in a non-conventional Christmas color mode.

swatch 372
This card started with a Kraft card stock base. Next, on a piece of Ranger watercolor paper, I did a watercolor wash with Peerless Watercolors and popped it up on the base with foam mounting tape. Then I added a Sweet Tooth card stock panel with an angled edge, stamped with Hand Lettered Holiday using Versamark and heat embossed with silver detail embossing powder.


I added a strip of silver sparkle card stock to the bottom edge and popped it up on foam, then added an arrangement of those sweet poinsettias from Winter Warmth and Winter Warmth Die-namics, stamped with Berrylicious dye ink for the leaves and Razzle Berry dye ink for the flowers. The flower accents were stamped with Gravel Gray dye ink and I used Pretty Pink Posh silver sequins for the centers.

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 CTD372 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd372 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 December Guest Designer, Torico!
