Hey everyone! Welcome to a new Color Throwdown Challenge! Today’s colors are brought to us by the lovely Vickie based on her gorgeous inspiration piece.
I simply couldn’t do anything but a snowflake card with these colors, now could I? I brought in my two blues with a watercolor wash background, then stamped a few snowflakes from You Make My Heart Melt stamp set and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The sentiment is from Snowfall of Blessings Stamp Set and was heat embossed with silver embossing powder on Black Licorice card stock.
Next I added some Let It Snowflake Too Die-namics, cut from Silver Sparkle card stock and elevated a bit on hot glue. Otherwise, dimension was achieved with foam mounting 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 CTD469 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd469 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!
