Warmest Wishes–Color Throwdown Challenge #476


Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge!! This week Miss Vickie is challenging us with a sweet Wintry color combo based on her VERY sweet inspiration piece.


I started with a Blue Breeze card stock base and created a snow storm using watered down Copic Opaque White and a small craft brush. While that was drying, I cut Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics and Single Stitch Line Rounded Rectangle Frames from Sweet Tooth card stock and Deer Love from Kraft card stock with Black Licorice card stock eyes and noses.


I laid out my scene and stamped Modern Trees and the sentiment from Snow Globe Sentiments with Black Licorice dye ink, then built my scene, popped up on foam tape, to 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 CTD476 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd476 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!

  1. That's a great design, and showcases those colors so well. Those black trees look great with the deer, and the snow is perfect.
