Hey everyone! It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Amy Rysavy is our hostess and she’s chosen some colors from this gorgeous inspiration piece for us to play with.
I thought those rich colors would make a great early evening sky—one perfect for a sympathy card. We hate having to made these but it’s always good to have one on hand, right? So, I sponged the background using Orange Zest and Boysenberry dye inks on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper, then splattered some Copic Opaque White for the stars. When that was dry I adhered it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Then I added a distant snowbank cut from Cement Gray card stock and set it aside.
Then I cut Birch Trees Die-namics from Sweet Tooth card stock and added strips of Cement Gray card stock behind them. I added them to the card front, some popped up on foam tape and the foreground snowbank on which I stamped the sentiment from Deepest Sympathy Stamp Set with Cement Gray dye ink.
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 CTD531 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd531 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, Leigh O’Brien!
