Hey there, and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! I’m hosting this week so I hope to see lots of you playing along! My colors are on the basic side inspired by this gorgeous Farmhouse scene.
And since my inspiration piece was set in a kitchen, there’s where I went for my card design. I’m using BB Recipe for Happiness Stamp Set and the coordinating Die-namics to create a sweet little scene. I applied molding paste through English Brick Wall Stencil on Stone Gray card stock for the background and used White Birch Adhesive Backed Sheet for the floor. The images were colored with Copic markers.
The scene was framed with Inside & Out Stitched Circle STAX and the sentiment was heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock cut with Essential Speech Bubble Die-namics.
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 CTD492 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd492 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!
