For My Sweet Mom–Color Throwdown Challenge #490


Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Wanda has chosen a romantic color combo based on this gorgeous inspiration piece!


I was compelled to let the inspiration piece lead my design for this card and I went all vintage. I’m actually calling this Modern Vintage Style ;-) I simply could not resist using some distressed and crinkled seam binding from my stash that has not seen enough love lately. For the background I spread molding paste through English Brick Wall Stencil and left it white and let the dimension be enough.


Then I added Magical Mandala Die-namics cut from Silver Sparkle Card Stock and the Eiffel Tower from In Paris Stamp Set and Die-namics, stamped on Cement Gray card stock. Next came Fab Foliage Die-namics cut from Cactus card stock and three Mini Royal Roses Die-namics, cut from Cotton Candy and Wild Wisteria card stocks. The leaves and the roses were sponged with Kraft dye ink. Next I added a sentiment from All About Mom, heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock and popped up on foam. To finish off I added some 3mm, 4mm, and 5mm Clear Round Drops.

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 CTD490 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd490 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!
