Abstract Birthday–CTD #396


Hi everyone! It’s time for another Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Lisa is our hostess and she has some yummy colors based on an equally yummy inspiration piece.

I almost went the ice cream cone route but that would have been too easy ;-) Instead, I went all abstract artsy. I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then on more Sweet Tooth card stock I stamped Jumbo Abstract Art with the three challenge colors using Peach Bellini dye ink, Ripe Raspberry dye ink, and Grape Jelly dye ink. These images come in real handy when you need some coverage!


Then I stamped Distressed Patterns with Black Licorice dye ink and Delicata Gold pigment ink and popped it up on the base with foam mounting tape. I cut “happy” from Brushstroke Birthday Greetings Die-namics using Brushed Gold card stock three times, adhered them together for strength, and adhered them to the card. On a narrow strip of Black Licorice card stock I stamped “BIRTHDAY” from BB Birthday Bears with Versamark and heat embossed with gold detail embossing powder then popped it up on foam tape.

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 CTD396 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd396 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 very talented June Guest Designer, Kara Vrabel!
