You Are My Happy Place–Color Throwdown Challenge #539

Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Vickie is our hostess this week and she’s chosen some gorgeous colors based on her inspiration piece.

When I saw these colors I immediately thought of a tropical sunset/moonrise so that’s where I went. First I sponged the background with Blueberry, Lemon Drop, and Orange Zest Premium Dye Inks on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper and adhered it to the Sweet Tooth card stock base. Next I cut some elements from Beach Scene Builder Die-namics, heat embossed the sentiment from Beach Bunnies Stamp Set, and put it all together.

I added some Copic Opaque White for the moon’s glow on  the water, popped up the palm trees on foam tape, and it was done!

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 CTD539 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd539 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, Lee Ann Barrett!

  1. Your card is lovely!! A typical Florida scene. I have the Beach Scene dies...YAY!!
    What is Copic Opaque White?? It's not a marker, is it?

    1. Thank you!! It's a little pot (or bottle) of white opaque "paint". Great for when you want a really white accent.


Thank you for your kind comments--they make my day and I appreciate every one!
