Welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! I’m the hostess this week and my colors are based on this photo that I took in Cornwall this summer.
I’m using Friendly Raccoons Stamp Set and Die-namics from MFT’s September Release. I stenciled the background using Mini Cloud Edges and Berrylicious dye ink applied with a sponge dauber. I popped that up on foam on a Stone Gray Card Stock base and built my scene using Grassy Hills Die-namics and Puffy Clouds Die-namics along with the adorable raccoon and the trees from the set.
The sentiment was heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock cut with Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips and I finished off with a heart cut from Silver Sparkle card stock with Blueprints 32 Die-namics.
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 CTD512 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd512 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!
