Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Miss Jodi has some SWEET colors for us this week based on this fun and funky pillow inspiration.
I thought this was a romantic color combo so I thought where is there that’s more romantic than Paris, right? First, on Sweet Tooth card stock, I sponged on the clouds using Berrylicious dye ink and Mini Cloud Edges Stencil, then over stamped with Romantic Script Background with Blueberry dye ink. to finish the background I sponged some Cotton Candy dye ink at the bottom and popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base.
Then I added a couple of strips of patterned paper from Black & White Stripes and Hearts & Stripes, and the Eiffel Tower image from In Paris Stamp Set and Die-namics. Next I added the sentiment from From the Heart Stamp Set, heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock, and Fab Foliage cut from Blueberry and After Midnight card stocks, and Mini Royal Roses, cut from Cotton Candy card stock. I used these roses recently and a commenter told me she had missed them. I realized I had too, so I’m using them again :) To finish, I added some hearts cut with Tag Builder Blueprints 5 Die-namics.
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 CTD475 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd475 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 Guest Designer, Debra James, who is going to stay with us through January!
