Hello, Sunshine–Color Throwdown Challenge #508


Hey everyone, welcome to another Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Lynn is our hostess and she has a bold color palette for us drawn from her very colorful inspiration piece.


I didn’t really want to do flowers per se so I went looking though my stamps to see what would work. When I ran across BB Polynesian Paradise I knew I’d hit upon it. First up I stamped the images on No-Line Coloring Card Stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut them out with the coordinating Die-namics and colored them up in the challenge colors. Next I did an alcohol ink background to use as my “sun” to play off the sentiment. Love the texture look you get by working the alcohol ink with a brush and alcohol!


Then I cut Inside & Out Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics off the side of a panel of Sweet Tooth card stock, adhered the “sun” with foam over the opening, and popped the whole thing up on foam on a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Next I added a strip of Black & White Stripes Paper Pack and heat embossed the sentiment on Black Licorice card stock cut with Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strips, the sentiment strip popped up on foam. To finish off I adhered the images on foam, as well.

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 CTD509 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd509 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, Joy Taylor!
