Hey there and welcome to a new Color Throwdown Challenge! Amy Rohl is our hostess this week and her nautical inspiration piece just made me to in that direction!
So, I was working way ahead because I was going to be traveling and got this done before the recent retirement sale at MFT. I got out the recently-retired Just Beclaws Stamp Set and Die-namics for this card. First I sponged the night sky with After Midnight dye ink and splattered it with slightly watered-down Copic Opaque White for the stars. Yes, it’s night, but the beach and near sea is lit up with spotlight from the house on the beach, right? Right.
The images were stamped with Extreme Black hybrid ink on No Line Coloring card stock, cut out with the coordinating Die-namics, colored with Copic markers, and popped up on the beach with foam tape. The sentiment was stamped with After Midnight dye ink 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 CTD544 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd544 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!
