Love You–CTD #426


Hey, everyone! It’s time for a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Lisa has chosen a classic color combo based on this gorgeous Winter inspiration piece.


I decided these colors were perfect for another Valentine. To begin, I did a watercolor wash on Ranger Watercolor Paper with Peerless Watercolors after stamping Floral Fantasy Background with Versamark and heat embossing with white detail embossing powder. I adhered Chevron Segments Cover-Up Die-namics and then adhered it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base.


I added a Pierced Fishtail Flag STAX Die-namics, cut from Kraft card stock, a strip of Hearts & Stripes Paper Pack, and Bold Greenery Die-namics, cut from Kraft card stock and Gravel Gray card stock and tied with a baker’s twine bow. The sentiment was a combination of LLD Little Lowercase Letters Die-namics cut from Red Hot card stock and Label Maker Love stamped with Gravel Gray dye ink.

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 CTD426 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd426 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 January Guest Designer, Leigh Penner! Since December was a short month, we’re keeping Leigh on for another month—I’m sure you’re as delighted about that as we are!
