Mahalo–CTD #402


Hi, everyone, it’s time for another Color Throwdown Challenge! I’m hosting this week and I hope to see lots of you playing along!

I went all tropical for these colors. I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base. I cut more Sweet Tooth card stock with Inside & Out Stitched Oval STAX Die-namics for a frame. I watercolored a background on Ranger Watercolor Paper with Peerless Watercolors and a waterbrush and popped up the frame on it with foam mounting tape.


Next I stamped images from BB Polynesian Paradise and BB Penguins in Paradise on Ranger Watercolor Paper with Black Licorice hybrid ink, watercolored them, and arranged them into a scene with foam tape. I added Puffy Clouds Die-namics cut from Sweet Tooth card stock, stamped the sentiment with Versamark on Black Licorice card stock, heat embossed with white detail embossing powder, and popped it up on foam.

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 CTD402 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd402 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!
