Fiesta Like There’s No Mañana–Color Throwdown Challenge #489


Hey everybody, welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Vickie is our hostess this week and she has challenged us to some bright colors based on her refreshing inspiration piece.


I used a lot of neutrals on this card on purpose because I can only think of red and green as Christmas, LOL! I’m using Llama Love Stamp Set and Die-namics, colored with Copic markers and I added some colored pencil texture to the llama. The background was created by spreading molding paste through English Brick Wall Stencil and after it dried sponged Latte dye ink though the stencil.


The colored images were popped up on foam tape for dimension. I cut Fiesta Die-namics three times, layered them together and adhered to the top of the card. I finished the sentiment by heat embossing it on Black Licorice card stock and also popping it up on foam tape.

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 CTD489 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd489 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 April Guest Designer, Hannelie Bester!
