Hey there and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown! Lisa is our hostess this week and she has a soft palette for us to work with based on her fun inspiration piece.
I wanted to see if I could create a softer look with alcohol inks than I’d been able to get before so I thought these colors would be good to work with. I used Aqua and Shell Pink and worked them as I usually do with a small brush and lots of alcohol. I like it!
I cut a panel of the background, matted it with Fresh Squeezed Chevron Paper Pack from MFT and popped it up on foam on a Stone Gray card stock base.
Then I cut Miss You Die-namics from Silver Shine card stock and Steel Gray card stock and stacked them, the silver offset just a bit to allow the edge of Steel Gray to show. I adhered that to the alcohol ink panel and finished off with some Sprinkles in matching 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 CTD506 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd506 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!
