Blessed–Color Throwdown Challenge #470


Hey everyone, it’s time for another Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Wanda is our hostess and she has some gorgeous Autumn colors for us based on this yummy inspiration piece.


So, I could not think of anything better to do with these colors than to use Modern Trees. I didn’t want to do a “scene”—although I love them I’ve been doing a lot of them lately so wanted to do something different. First, I dry embossed Sweet Tooth card stock with Radiating Rays Stencil (WHAT will I do if it’s ever retired????) then sponged it with ink, starting with Tangy Orange, then Orange Fizz, and fading to Daffodil. I popped it up on foam on a card base then stamped the trees with the same colors added Chocolate Brown for the trunks/limbs.


Then I cut Blessed & Blessings Die-namics three times from Chocolate Brown card stock, stacked them, and added them to the card front with a little foam tape and it was done! Really loving 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 CTD470 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd470 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 November Guest Designer, Kelly Lunceford!
