Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Lynn is our hostess and she has some sweet hues for us to work with.
I pulled out a couple of sets I haven’t used in a while and showed them some love. I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base. I cut Stitched Oval Scallop Frames Die-namics from more Sweet Tooth card stock and after temporarily using it for sentiment placement, I stamped the sentiment—first “Fabulous” with Black Licorice dye ink directly on the card base, and the rest stamped with Versamark on Black Licorice card stock, heat embossed with white detail embossing powder, and popped up on foam mounting tape.
Then I stamped up a bunch of Pretty Posies--some to color and some with color—cut them out with the coordinating dies and colored them with Peerless Watercolors. I added the scalloped oval with foam tape and arranged and adhered my flowers and leaves 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 CTD438 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd438 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 April Guest Designer, Jeanne Jachna!
