To a Beautiful Friend–Color Throwdown Challenge #483


Hello and welcome to a new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Broni is our hostess and she has chosen a lovely color combo for us!


When I saw that coral color I immediately thought of the water lilies in Splendid Swans Stamp Set so I went with the flow ;-) I went a little artsy with this. Since I needed water for my swan but didn't have a color to use I went with white. I watercolored the creek side of my background and popped it up on foam mounting tape on my card base.


The images were stamped with Extreme Black on No-Line Coloring Card Stock then colored with Copics and popped up on foam into the scene. The sentiment was heat embossed and also popped up on foam for the 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 CTD483 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd483 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, Hannelie Bester!
