I decided to use some circles for my colors for this card. I started by sponging some Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper with Blueberry, Limelight, and Summer Splash dye inks and then cut them with Stitched Circle STAX Set 1, then arranged them on a Sweet Tooth card stock base and adhered them with foam tape.
Once that was done, I cut Friend Duo Die-namics from Silver Sparkle card stock and layered it with two copies of white scrape paper. Then I heat embossed the sentiment on Heavy Weight Vellum (love this stuff!), adhered the die cut sentiment to it and then adhered both to the die cut circles. The avoids using adhesive of any kind under the vellum—which is really hard to hide in my experience. To finish off I added some Sprinkles in the challenge colors.
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 CTD513 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd513 and #colorthrowdown on social media. Hope to see you there!
