Hello, Gorgeous–CTD #421


Hi everyone, it’s time for another Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Amy Rysavy has chosen a cool palette based on her very festive inspiration piece.


I decided to not do a Christmas card. I was thinking about what to do when Diamond Die-namics popped into my head and a plan was formed :) I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Next I added a strip of Black Licorice card stock across the bottom and stamped the sentiment from Bling It On with Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder. Then I cut my gems from Ranger Watercolor Paper, colored them with Peerless Watercolors, and added the “facets” cut from Silver Sparkle card stock.


I used the same watercolors to add some splatters to a panel of Ranger Watercolor Paper and popped it up on foam mounting tape on the card base. I finished off by adding my gems by popping them 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 CTD421 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd421 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 November Guest Designer, Marisa Ritzen!
