Hi everyone and welcome to a new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Wanda is our hostess and she’s challenge up to use a color combo based on her stunning inspiration piece.
I wasn’t going to make any more Valentines but I guess I had to with this inspiration piece ;-) The negative heart reminded me of the Be Mine Banner so I got it out for this card. To begin, I lightly stamped Romantic Script Background on Ranger Watercolor Paper with Cement Gray hybrid ink, then did a watercolor wash with Peerless Watercolors and when it was dry, I stamped the XOXO sentiment from Valentine Wishes with Black Licorice hybrid ink, embossed the stitch line, and popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base.
While the card front was drying, I cut Be Mine Banner Die-namics from Ripe Raspberry card stock and backed the letters with Black Licorice card stock. I popped the banner up on foam tape and finished off with some hearts cut with Tag Builder Blueprints 5.
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 CTD530 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd530 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 for February, Leigh O’Brien!
