Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Amy Rysavy is our hostess and she’s challenging us to some neutrals bases on her sparkly Christmas inspiration piece.
So, I pondered a while and decided to go with some Christmas “greenery” but in gray ;-) I decided to use a silver frame for my stamping so first I drew around the frame lightly with pencil so I’d have some boundaries for the stamping. Next I stamped the sentiment from Hand-Lettered Holiday Greetings on a Sweet Tooth card stock panel. Then I penciled in some lines for my greenery and stamped it using Cement Gray Premium Dye Ink.
Next I drew in some black berries with a black Copic multiliner and matted it with Black Licorice card stock and popped them up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam tape. For the finish I adhered the frame, also on foam tape.
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 CTD521 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd521 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, Caly Person!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you soon!
