Hello, everyone, welcome to another Color Throwdown Challenge! Our hostess this week is Wanda, who has some YUMMY colors for us to work with!
I decided flowers were the way to go with these colors and since it had been a while since I showed Stitched Flowers and Stitched Blooms Die-namics any love it was time to get them out. I started by sponging some Lemon Chiffon dye ink through Sunrise Radiating Rays Stencil and then stamped a sentiment from Brushstroke Expressions on it after marking off where the frame would hit with pencil. Then I cut A2 Rectangle Frames Die-namics from Silver Sparkle card stock and created a shaker element with the stenciled and stamped panel as the backing, then popped that whole thing up on foam on the card base.
Next I cut a bunch of flowers in the challenge colors, assembled them, and adhered them with hot glue to the framed shaker element.
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 CTD540 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd540 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!
