I had to think about this one—when I made this card my brain was tired, LOL. So I did several trial arrangements of the elements before I was satisfied and this is what I ended up with. I started by dry embossing Sweet Tooth card stock with English Brick Wall Stencil then adhered it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam tape. Next I cut Birdbath Die-namics from Cement Gray card stock and added some Copic marker shading, then popped it up on foam tape. IRL you can see I added Nuvo clear glaze to the “water”. Next I stamped the birdie from A Tweet Hello Stamp set on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut it out with the coordinating Die-namics, colored it with Copic markers and popped it up on foam on the birdbath.
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 CTD549 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd549 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!
