Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Wanda is our hostess and she’s got some neutrals for us to work with.
I thought these colors would work for a masculine card so I went with a birthday card that could really go for either. I started with a Kraft card stock base, then lightly stamped Happy Birthday Background with Milk Chocolate dye ink in a distressed manner on a panel of Primitive White card stock and popped it up on the base with foam tape. Next I added Stitched Oval Frames Die-namics, cut from Milk Chocolate card stock and also popped up on foam.
Next I added the sentiment from BB Greetings Galore Stamp Set stamped with Milk Chocolate dye ink on Kraft card stock cut with Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strips and adhered with foam tape. I cut Grand Greenery from Jellybean Green card stock and tied the individual fronds together with hemp cord, then adhered them for the finish.
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 CTD520 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd520 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 November Guest Designer, Caly Person!
