Hello There–CTD #407


Hello there! Welcome to this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Lori is our hostess and she has chosen a trendy color combo.

This card was so much fun to make! I know I say that a lot but it’s true, LOL! I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Then I added some Ranger Watercolor Paper on which I applied a watercolor wash using Peerless Watercolors and a waterbrush and some clean water splatters add interest. I popped that up on foam mounting tape on the card base and then I cut Chunky Chevron Cover-Up Die-namics from Sweet Tooth card stock, laid it out on my watercolored background, and used it as a template for popping the cut outs up on foam.


Next I watercolored Bold Greenery Die-namics (can you tell I LOVE these leaves?) and adhered them with hot glue. I cut Hello There Die-namics from Black Licorice card stock three times, adhered them together, and popped it up on foam. I stamped the “THERE” image from Label Maker Sentiments with Black Licorice dye ink, popped it up on foam, 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 CTD407 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd407 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 August Guest Designer, Wanda Guess!
