Happy Holidays–Color Throwdown Challenge #515


Hey, there, and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Today’s challenge is brought to you by Jodi and is inspired by this lovely Fall mantle.


This color combo was a perfect time to get out the recently released Delightful Deer Die-namics and the trees from Mountain High Die-namics to create a Winter Wonderland scene. First I stenciled some snow drifts with Drifts & Hills Stencil and Cement Gray dye ink, also adding some to the sky since I was going to have some snow falling, then I stamped the sentiment and a few tiny trees from Trio of Trees Stamp Set.


I cut the deer and trees out, sponging some shading on the deer with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and popped everything up on foam. To finish off, I slightly watered down some Copic Opaque White and splattered it all over for the snow.

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 CTD515 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd515 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!
