Birthday Wishes–Color Throwdown Challenge #525


Hi everyone, welcome to another Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Jodi is our hostess and she has chosen a neutral color palette based on her awesome inspiration piece.


Am I the only one who misses the chalkboard technique since it's no longer trendy? I do miss it and when I saw these colors I knew it would be perfect for them! So to begin, on Black Licorice card stock, I heat embossed sentiments and images from several sets, then filled in the balloons and banner with a white pencil, which looks so much like chalk! Next I applied some "eraser" Mark's with Sweet Tooth pigment ink and a sponge.


To continue the chalkboard theme, next I cut Stitched Rectangle Frames Die-namics from Kraft card stock, stamped with Wood Plank Background and Milk Chocolate dye ink. I popped that up on foam tape on the chalkboard panel then adhered the whole thing to a Sweet Tooth card stock base for the finish. It was lots of fun to revisit this old favorite technique this week!

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 CTD525 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd525 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, Vickie Finger!
