Hi everyone and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Lisa is our hostess this week and her rich palette of colors was inspired by this gorgeous photo.
I can’t seem to leave Falling Leaves Die-namics alone, but I thought they would be perfect for this Fall-ish color combo. I started by sponging Antique Linen Distress Oxide ink on some woodgrain card stock then splattered some water to move some ink, and popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam tape. Then I cut the leaves using Eggplant, Brick Red, and Jellybean Green card stocks, brushing the edges with Delicata Gold ink.
The sentiment is from LJD Geometric Greenery and was stamped with Versamark on Black Licorice card stock, heat embossed with gold detail embossing powder, and adhered with foam tape. I arranged the leaves and adhered them with hot glue then added some dew drops with Nuvo Jewel Drops – Morning Dew for the finish.
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 CTD466 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!
