Hello and welcome to a new Color Throwdown Challenge! I’m hosting this week and I’ve chosen a varied palette based on this gorgeous photo of Ireland—somewhere I’d love to go someday. I hope to see lots of you playing along with us this week!
My card uses the just-released Birthday Bear & Friends Stamp Set and Die-namics from MFT. The images are all stamped on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored with Copic markers. The background was done by applying a watercolor wash on Ranger Watercolor paper using Peerless Watercolors. I added Grassy Fields Die-namics cut from Sour Apple card stock and framed everything with Sweet Tooth card stock cut with Inside & Out Stitched Oval STAX Die-namics.
Once the frame was in place I added the images and Puffy Clouds Die-namics, then added everything to a Sweet Tooth card stock base. The sentiment was heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock cut with Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips, also popped up on foam.
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 CTD532 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd532 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!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you soon!
