Hey, there, welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week’s challenge is brought to us by Amy Rysavy and is loaded with warm neutrals for us to work with.
I went kinda CAS with my card today, using the just-released Crown Die-namics and Queen for the Day Stamp Set from MFT. Since I just saw the real Crown Jewels a few weeks ago in London, I decided to bling up this crown a bit and I dry embossed the card stock under it with Radiating Rays Stencil for emphasis.
The challenge colors were carried out with the strips of patterned paper and sentiment strip below the crown, as well as the enamel dots.
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 CTD501 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd501 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, along with our super talented Guest Designer, Kathy Schweinfurth!
