Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! I’m the hostess this week and I’ve chosen some soft colors based on my dreamy inspiration piece.
I’m using In Paris Stamp Set and Die-namics again—love this set so much! First of all I stamped the Eiffel Tower with Kraft hybrid ink on Ranger Watercolor paper then did a gray wash with some Kraft to ground it. Then I stamped and watercolored the balloons and adhered them and some Puffy Clouds Die-namics with foam tape.
The sentiment was heat embossed on Gravel Gray card stock cut with Tag builder Blueprints 5 Die-namics which I embellished with seam binding and baker’s twine before popping it up on foam tape for the finish.
