Thanks–CTD #401


Hey, everyone, it’s time for another
Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Amy Rysavy is our hostess and she has chosen a cool color palette based on her gorgeous inspiration piece.


I was inspired by a canvas I recently saw using these same colors for my design. I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then applied a watercolor wash with the challenge colors on Ranger Watercolor Paper using Peerless Watercolors and a waterbrush and popped it up on the base with foam mounting tape.


Then I stamped and cut Build-able Bouquet and Build-able Bouquet Die-namics using Black Licorice hybrid ink, watercolored the images, and arranged them on the card front with foam tape. I cut three copies of Thanks & Hello Die-namics from Sweet Tooth card stock, adhered them together for dimension, popped it up on the design, 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 CTD401 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd401 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!
