You Are So Loved - Color Throwdown Challenge #536
Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Lisa is our hostess and she has challenged us to use a soft pastel color combo.
I decided to go the floral route so I got out Beautiful Bloom Stamp Set and Die-namics. I heat embossed the image with gold detail embossing powder, cut it out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored it with Copic markers.
I didn't have anything that was the exact green so I did a watercolor wash on Ranger Watercolor paper for the background, heat embossed the sentiment from Amything-but-Basic Encouragement Stamp Set, matted it with Gold Sparkle card stock, and popped it up on a Primitive Cream card stock base. Then I adhered the flower image with foam tape and finished off with some gold Sprinkles.
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 CTD536 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd536 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!
