Hi everyone and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Lori is our hostess this week and she has choses some Springtime primary colors for us to work with.
My card is pretty simple but I think it captures the Springtime feel of the inspiration piece. I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then added a Ranger Watercolor Paper layer on which I did a watercolor wash with Peerless Watercolors. I added Stitched Valley Die-namics cut from Dots & Stripes Bright Paper Pack with the sentiment stamped on it, and a strip of Gumdrop Green card stock cut with Grassy Edges Die-namics. I thought the striped paper looked like a freshly mown field :)
Then I stamped BB Up In the Air on more watercolor paper and Black Licorice hybrid ink, cut it out with the coordinating die, colored with Peerless Watercolors, and popped it up on the card front with foam mounting tape. I added a Sunshine card stock sun cut with Blueprints 21 Die-namics and Puffy Clouds Die-namics to finish the scene.
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 CTD437 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd437 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!
