You Have a Heart of Gold–CTD #468


Hey, everyone, welcome back to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Lynn has a very Fall-ish palette for us so I went with a Fall-ish design.


I started by sponging my background using Drifts & Hills Stencil and Jellybean Green dye ink and Orange Fizz dye ink. I stamped some trees from Modern Trees stamp set with Chocolate Brown dye ink and added some shadows with a Copic marker. I figured the branches might not throw much a shadow so I ignored them ;-)


Then I tore the edges all around and popped it up on a Kraft card stock base with foam tape. I added a sentiment from Kind Thanks stamp set, heat embossed with gold embossing powder on a strip of Chocolate Brown card stock. Twice the Thanks Die-namics was cut from Brushed Gold card stock and twice more from Sweet Tooth card stock, stacked, and adhered.

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 CTD468 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd468 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!
