Hello there and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week’s hostess is the awesome Amy Rysavy and she’s challenging us with this luscious color palette.
I started with a English Brick Wall Stencil background—molding paste and then Latte dye ink, on Sweet Tooth card stock cut with Stitched Dome STAX Die-namics, and popped that up on a dry embossed Sunrise Radiating Rays Stencil panel.
I’d been wanting to try out the new wool felt from MFT so I took this opportunity to do just that. I created some gorgeous Royal Roses Die-namics using Persimmon Wool Felt—it cuts like a hot knife through butter--and added Fab Foliage leaves cut from Sour Apple and Jellybean Green card stocks.
The sentiment is from All About Mom, framed with Fishtail Flag Frames Die-namics cut from Kraft card stock and popped 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 CTD491 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd491 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, Rachel Alvarado!
