Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Lynn is our hostess and she’s challenged us to a fun color palette based on her equally fun inspiration piece.
When I sat down to start this card, I looked through my stamps to see what would work with these colors and I was immediately drawn to Playful Giraffes. I mean, the colors were perfect, right? So, I began by sponging my background to get the aqua and the lighter yellow in using Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper and Wild Honey and Broken China Distress Inks. Then I added Stitched Valley and Grassy Edges Die-namics, also sponged with Wild Honey Distress Ink and the sentiment stamped with Milk Chocolate hybrid ink, using foam tape for dimension.
I adhered all that to a Sweet Tooth card stock base and stamped the giraffes on Sweet Tooth card stock with Milk Chocolate hybrid ink. They were cut out with the coordinating Die-namics and colored with Copic markers then popped up into the scene with 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 CTD528 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd528 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, Vicki Finger!
