Celebrate You–Color Throwdown Challenge #481


Hello and welcome to a new Color Throwdown Challenge! This weeks subdued palette is brought to us by Amy Rysavy, based on her gorgeous inspiration piece—I love the industrial look of this room!


I began by covering my card base with patterned paper from Bundles of Blossoms Brights Paper Pack, then built a shaker element using Celebrate Speech Bubble Die-namics cut from Primitive White Card Stock, using Heat Resistant Acetate for the window, foam tape for the barrier, and more Primitive White Card Stock for the back.


Once that was adhered to the card base, I added a sentiment from All About You Stamp Set, heat embossed with gold detail embossing powder on Chocolate Brown Card stock and some balloons from Party Animals Stamp Set and Die-namics. The two purple were colored with Copics and for the other I used gold watercolor.

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 CTD481 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd481 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, Claire Apostoloff!
