Welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Amy Rysavy is our hostess this week and she has a gorgeous palette for us to work with based on her equally gorgeous inspiration piece.
I could only see roses when I first went to work on this card and, happily, I have some Die-namics from MFT that helped me out with that :) I started with a Stone Gray card stock base, stamped the sentiment from Brushstroke Expressions Stamp Set, and cut some Sweet Tooth card stock with Stitched Scallop Basic Edges Die-namics, and popped it up on the base with foam tape.
Then I cut and assembled Rolled Rose Die-namics and Mini Rolled Roses Die-namics from Peach Bellini, Tickled Pink, and Wild Cherry card stocks and Fab Foliage and Grand Greenery Die-namics from Sour Apple and Gumdrop Green card stocks and started to design my “bouquet”. After I had it arranged like I wanted, I adhered everything down with hot glue. To finish off I added some Sprinkles in the challenge colors and was done!
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 CTD511 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd511 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!
