Hi there, welcome to a new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Lori is our hostess and she’s challenging us to a bevy of tropical colors base on her fun inspiration piece.
I worked off that tropical vibe for my card today. I started by sponging a background using all four of the challenge colors (inks listed below). Then I stamped up some images from BB Polynesian Paradise with Extreme Black hybrid ink, colored them with Copic markers, and fussy cut them out.
The sponged background was adhered to a Sweet Tooth card stock base and the sentiment was stamped with Extreme Black hybrid ink, then the stamped images were adhered, mostly with hot glue and the pineapple was popped up in the middle of the flowers with foam tape.
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 CTD547 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd547 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, including our amazing June Guest Designer, Alicia Thelin!
