So, with Memorial Day coming up soon in the US, I got all patriotic with this card. I started by doing a watercolor wash background and after it dried ran it through my die cutting machine with Stitched Star Grid Die-namics. I then adhered it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base and added the stars, cut from red glitter paper.
Next I cut New York Skyline Die-namics from Ranger Watercolor paper, did a gray watercolor wash on it and then heat embossed the sentiment from Gift Card Greetings with silver embossing powder at the bottom. I added that to the bottom, tied around some red, white, and blue baker’s twine and was done!
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 CTD494 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd494 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 May Guest Designer, Rachel Alvarado!
