Thinking of You–Color Throwdown Challenge #526


Hey there, it’s time for a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week’s hostess is Lisa, who has some cool colors for us to work with.


I don’t know about the rest of you but I’m done with snowflakes for this year, LOL! So I went all Springtime with a butterfly. To begin, I did a watercolor background on Ranger Watercolor paper with Peerless Watercolors, splattered it with some black acrylic ink, stamped the sentiment on the bottom strip with Extreme Black hybrid ink (dye ink with feather on watercolor paper) then popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base when it was dry. I’m using an MFT sketch from a while back that I love—so simple and so versatile—so I trimmed off 1/4” and inserted some Black & White Stripes Paper Pack. Often a watercolor wash with warp watercolor paper so I’ve gotten in the habit of backing it with fun foam, which adds dimension and helps to flatten the warp out.


The butterfly is from Fluttering Friend Stamp Set, was stamped with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut out with the coordinating Die-namics, colored with Copic markers, and popped up on the card with foam tape. To finish off I’ve 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 CTD526 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd526 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!
