Hello and thanks for joining me for a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Vickie is our hostess this week and she’s picked some swee colors based on her inspiration piece.
I had to ponder on these colors for a while and I finally came up with using Cheeky Monkey and Cheeky Monkey Die-namics. I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then on more Sweet Tooth card stock I applied molding paste through Wonky Chevron Stencil, tied around some baker’s twine, and popped it up on foam mounting tape on the base. Next I stamped the monkey with Black Licorice hybrid ink, cut him out with the coordinating die, and colored him with Copic markers.
The sentiment was stamped with Versamark on Black Licorice card stock cut with Blueprints 2 Die-namics and popped up on foam. I added the monkey and some enamel dots, 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 CTD399 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd399 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 June Guest, Kara Vrabel!
