Hello and welcome to another Color Throwdown Challenge! Lisa is our hostess this week and she’s chosen some gorgeous colors based on her quilt inspiration piece.
I’m using Flower Silhouette Stamp Set for the floral images, More Essential Sentiments Stamp Set, and Skinny Strips Die-namics for the sentiment strip. First I heat embossed the floral images with white detail embossing powder then sponged the colors using Tropical Teal, Coral Crush, and Blueberry dye inks. The coral is looking orange in the photo but it’s coral IRL. After they were sponged I splattered a little clear water on each panel for some interest.
Once they were done and dry I popped them up on a Sweet Tooth card stock card front which was in turn popped up on a Sweet Tooth card stock card base, staggering their positions. The sentiment was also heat embossed and also popped up on foam. I finished off with some clear drop in several sizes.
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 CTD546 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd546 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, including our amazing June Guest Designer, Alicia Thelin!
