Hello there! It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week’s hostess is Vickie and she has chosen a fun color combo base on her spoooooky inspiration piece.
I decided not to go spoooooky with my card but instead I got out my BB You’re Super and used the colors for this super scene. I started with the background—first sponging the sky and they stamping the cityscape on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper. After trimming it down and stamping the sentiment, I popped it up with foam tape on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with a strip of Black & White Stripes patterned paper across the bottom.
Next I stamped the image on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut it out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored it with Copic markers. I popped it up on foam tape, added the BOOM speech explosion bubble, and finished off with some Silver Sparkle card stock stars cut with Tag Builder Blueprints 6.
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, Amy Kolling!
