Grateful for You–Color Throwdown Challenge #514


Hello, it’s time for a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge and we’re celebrating Fall today with these gorgeous colors chosen by Amy Rohl!


These colors screamed Fall leaves to me so I just ran with it. I started by applying molding paste on Sweet Tooth card stock through English Brick Wall Stencil and after it dried I sponged it with Tangy Orange dye ink. Then I figured out where I needed the little sentiment from Grateful for You and stamped it with Milk Chocolate dye ink and popped it up on foam on a Sweet Tooth card stock base.


Then I cut a bunch of Falling Leaves Die-namics from Orange Zest, Pineapple, and Milk Chocolate card stocks, sponged the edges with Kraft dye ink, and arranged and adhered them like I wanted. Then I cut Grateful for You Die-namics from Gold Sparkle card stock, layered it with two copies cut from Sweet Tooth card stock, and adhered it to the card front. To finish, I added some Nuvo Crystal Drops – Morning Dew to the leaves—I love how clear it is!

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 CTD514 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd514 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, Biggan!
