Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Today we have some sweet colors chose by my sweet friend Jodi and inspired by her equally sweet inspiration piece.
I thought this adorable bunny from the just-released Tutu Trio Stamp Set and Die-namics from MFT would be perfect for this challenge. First up, and on some Tropical Teal card stock, I sponged In the Spotlight Stencil with Sweet Tooth pigment ink and set it aside to dry. Then I stamped the image, on No-Line Coloring Card Stock with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink and colored it with Copic markers.
I created a layered sentiment element by first cutting Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strips from Fresh Squeezed Chevron Paper Pack then cut Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips from Stone Gray card stock and stamped the sentiment on it. Once my spotlight was dry, I splattered some watered down Copic Opaque White popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card base with foam tape. I adhered the image with foam tape as well as the sentiments strips. To finish off I added some tiny stars cut from Silver Sparkle card stock with Tag Builder Blueprints 6 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 CTD505 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd505 and #colorthrowdown on social media. Hope to see you there!
