Many Thanks–CTD #418


Hey, peeps! It’s time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!! This week Lynn is our hostess and she has gorgeous colors chosen based on this stunning inspiration piece.


OK, I confess I’m really happy with how this card turned out. I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base and added a strip of Dots & Stripes Neutral Paper Pack down the right side. Next I trimmed a piece of Ranger Watercolor Paper and applied a watercolor wash with Peerless Watercolors and a waterbrush, then splattered it with clean water and popped it up on the base with foam mounting tape.


Next I cut White Birch Adhesive-Backed Sheet with Stitched Rounded Square Frames Die-namics and popped them up on foam in a staggered pattern. Then I cut Falling Leaves Die-namics from, top to bottom, Poppy card stock, Coral Crush card stock, and Orange Fizz card stock, sponged the edges with Kraft dye ink and then popped them up on the frames with more foam tape. The sentiment is from Essential Sentiments and was stamped on Black Licorice card stock cut with Blueprints 27 Die-namics with Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder. I popped it up on foam and finished off with matching enamel dots.

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 CTD418 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd418 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!
