Hey everyone, welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Amy Rohl has a gorgeous intense color palette for us to play with.
Due to the saturation of these colors I chose to do a graphic design. That, and I wanted to play with MFT’s new Triangle STAX Die-namics, too :) To begin, I cut a bunch of sizes from Ranger Watercolor Paper and Gold Shine card stock the played around with arrangements. After I had them lined up like I wanted, I watercolored with green and dark purple in a marbled effect—love how these turned out!
Then I arranged them again on the Sweet Tooth card stock base, on which I’d already stamped the sentiment from Anything-but-Basic Friendship Stamp Set, and popped them up on foam—except for the tiniest ones, which I adhered directly with glue. And I was done! Really love this so you’re liable to be seeing more of these designs from me in the future ;-)
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 CTD484 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd484 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 March Guest Designer, Cheiron Brandon!
