Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week our hostess is Amy Rohl and she is challenging us to use this dramatic color combo on our projects: Black, white, and copper (or rust).
Sooooo, in keeping with the theme, I went kinda dramatic with my card! I created the background on Yupo paper with an alcohol ink—Pitch Black—and lots of working it with alcohol. I was going for a marble or granite look. Once that was done a added some Sunkissed Copper Nuvo Gilding Flakes—OMG, those things are messy!! But I love the look they give so I put up with it. Then I matted it with Black Licorice card stock and popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base.
Next I added Single Stitch Line Tag-Corner Rectangle Frames Die-namics cut from Black Licorice card stock and also popped up on foam, a panel of Black Licorice card stock and one of Black & White Stripes Patterned Paper. I cut Thanks & Hello Die-namics from Black Licorice card stock three times, stacked them for dimension, and adhered to the striped paper. To finish off and continue the copper theme, I cut Falling Leaves Die-namics from Copper Shine card stock and popped them up on foam.
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 CTD504 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd504 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!
