Hi, everyone, welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Amy Rysavy is our hostess and she has some sweet colors for us based on this happy inspiration piece.
I sorta of stuck with the theme of the photo for my card. First of all I stamped up some Sweet Tooth card stock with Happy Birthday Background and Black Licorice dye ink. Then I did a watercolor wash on Ranger Watercolor Paper with Peerless Watercolors and cut it with the second largest balloon from Balloon STAX Die-namics. I created my shaker element with these, Heat Resistant Acetate Card Stock, foam mounting tape, and sequins.
I popped my shaker element up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base and added the sentiment from Big Birthday Sentiments with Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder.
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 CTD441 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd441 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 May Guest Designer, Amy Tsuruta!!
