Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week my girl Broni is our hostess and she has a gorgeous color combo for us based on her also gorgeous inspiration piece.
When I saw these colors I immediately thought of the night—or early evening—sky so that’s where I went.
I started by sponging my background using Boysenberry and Blue Yonder Premium Dye Inks. Once that dried, I splattered it with some slightly watered-down Copic Opaque White. While THAT was drying I did some die cutting using Shining Stars Die-namics and Silver Sparkle and Gold Sparkle card stocks to coordinate with the Kraft and gray card stocks I used.
Once dry, I added strips of Kraft and Cement Gray card stock down each side and adhered the sponged panel up on foam tape. The sentiment is from Written in the Stars Stamp Set and was heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock and adhered to the card front. I cut “Stars” from Silver Sparkle card stock and twice from scraps of white card stock, adhered them together and then to the card front. I finished off with die cut stars.
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 CTD533 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd533 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, Kelly Schirmer!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you soon!
