Blessed–Color Throwdown Challenge #461


Hi everyone! Welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week our hostess is Amy Rysavy and her colors are inspired by this gorgeous Fall scene.


Love these colors, don’t you?? I was so inspired by them that I went hog-wild, LOL! I started by creating my birch trees and adhered them to a card base. Then I cut the oval and popped it up with foam tape for dimension with a strip of patterned paper along the bottom of the base.


Then I stamped up the pumpkins and the fall leaves, fussy cut them out, and colored them with Copics. I adhered the die cut foliage, then the pumpkins, and stuck in the smaller leaves to fill it out. The die cut sentiment was cut three times from black card stock, adhered together, and also popped up on foam. I really love this card.

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 CTD461 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd461 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 September Guest Designer, Tammy Hershberger!
