Hey there, welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! I’m hosting this week so I hope to see lots of you in the gallery. My inspiration piece is a wreath that I just love.
I used Splendid Swans stamp set and Die-namics which, sadly, has recently been retired. Hopefully I’ll give you some ideas if you have this set in your stash, though. I started by stamping Wavy Coloring Book Background on Sweet Tooth card stock and heat embossing with white detail embossing powder then popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base.
Next I used a watercolor wash panel cut with Elegant Rectangle STAX Die-namics that I had in my stash and also popped it up on foam. The images were stamped on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, colored with Copic markers, and added to the sweet scene with foam tape. The sentiment was heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock cut with Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics. I finished off with a few clear droplets.
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 CTD542 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd542 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 May Guest Designer, Cécile Ribon!
