Looks Like You Are Stuck With Me–CTD #408


Hey, there! It’s time for another Color Throwdown Challenge! Lynn is our hostess this week and she has a primary color palette for us based on her super fun back-go-school inspiration piece.


I wasn’t in the back-to-school mood so I pulled out LLD Sweet Succulents and LLD Sweet Succulents Die-namics for this card. I stamped them on Ranger Watercolor Paper with Black Licorice hybrid ink and colored them with Peerless Watercolors and a waterbrush.


I stamped the sentiment at the bottom and popped the Sweet Tooth card stock panel up on foam mounting tape with a strip of Rainbow Stripes Paper Pack to break up the elements.

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 CTD408 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd408 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!
