Hello and welcome to another Color Throwdown Challenge! Today Lori has a super sweet color palette for us base on her super sweet inspiration piece.
To begin, I did a watercolor wash for my background and stamped a sentiment from Handwritten Happiness with Black Licorice hybrid ink. Next I cut Sweet Tooth card stock with Inside & Out Stitched Oval STAX Die-namics and applied molding paste through Moroccan Lattice Stencil and set it aside to dry.
In the meantime I cut Fab Foliage Die-namics from Sour Apple and Limelight card stocks and made some Mini Rolled Roses from Coral Crush and Lemon Chiffon card stocks. I then added the background to the card front with foam tape and adhered it to the card base. I adhered the foliage and roses with hot glue and finished off with some matching Sprinkles.
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 CTD497 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd497 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!
