Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Amy Rohl has given us another Halloween color combo based on her awesome inspiration piece.
I created a spooky scene by sponging some Smooth White card stock with Orange Fizz dye ink and Cement Gray dye ink, then put it in a frame created with Inside & Out Stitched Oval STAX and dry embossed with Cloudy Day Stencil.
The tree limb is from LJD Spooky Sweets Die-namics, cut from Black Licorice card stock, the moon was cut with Tag Builder Blueprints 6 from Sweet Tooth card stock, and the bats cut with BB Fab-BOO-lous Friends Die-namics. Dimension was created with foam tape. To create the eyes, I drew them in with a white gel pen then went over that with a Copic marker once it was dry. The sentiment is from BB Witch Way is the Candy? and was heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock cut with Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips, and everything was popped up on a Grout Gray card stock base with foam tape.
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 CTD464 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd464 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 October Guest Designer, Michele Ferguson!
