Hi, everyone, I’m back with a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Lynn is our hostess and she has brought us a combo of jewel-like colors based on her gorgeous inspiration piece.
I started by stamping some Ranger Watercolor Paper with Sheet Music Background and Black Licorice hybrid ink, then I cut a heart from the center using Heart STAX Die-namics. Next I did a watercolor wash in the challenge colors using Peerless Watercolors, popped that up on the card base with foam mounting tape and adhered the cut-out heart directly onto the Sweet Tooth card stock base.
Next I stamped an image from BB Strike Up the Band on Ranger Watercolor Paper with Black Licorice hybrid ink, cut it out with the coordinating die, and watercolored it with Peerless Watercolors. The sentiment was stamped with Versamark on Black Licorice card stock and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder, then adhered with foam tape. I added the little mousie with more foam tape 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 CTD448 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd448 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 June Guest Designer, Audrey Tokach!
