Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Today Lisa has a classic combo for us, inspired by this refreshing inspiration piece.
I decided to keep this card kind of simple so I started by doing a watercolor wash over the just released Radiating Halftone Background that I heat embossed on some Ranger Watercolor Paper. Then I popped up a couple sizes of Stitched Rectangle Scallop Edge Frames, some Black & White Stripes Paper Pack, and a sentiment from You Wow Me Stamp Set heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock.
I adhered that on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam tape, and added Wow Die-namics, cut from Silver Sparkle Card Stock, and also popped up on foam. I finished off with some Sprinkles in Beetle Black and Swimming Pool.
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 CTD496 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd496 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!
