Hey, everyone, it’s time for another Color Throwdown Challenge! Today Vickie has a fun summer-y color combo for us based on her gorgeous inspiration piece.
I love LLD Sweet Succulents and I hope it never retires!!! OK, got that out of my system ;-) I started by cutting Inside & Out Circle STAX from Sweet Tooth card stock, sponged the cut out lightly with Lemon Chiffon Premium Dye Ink, popped the panel up on foam tape on the card base, and adhered the cut out circle back in the opening directly to the card base.
Then I added a couple of strips of patterned paper and the sentiment, heat embossed with white detail embossing powder and adhered it. I stamped the images on No Line Coloring Card Stock with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink, cut them out with the coordinating Die-namics, colored with Copic markers, and popped it up on the card front. I finished off with some Sprinkles in challenge colors.
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 CTD499 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd499 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!
