Hi everyone, welcome to a new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week our hostess is Lynn, who is challenging us to some gorgeous colors based on her yummy inspiration piece.
I was very tempted to do a mermaid card but all those pastels reminded me of baby clothes so that’s what I did. I don’t have anything mint colored so I went with Limelight instead. First I sponged my background with Berrylicious dye ink on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper and stamped the sentiment from LLD Welcome, Baby Stamp Set and adhered that panel to a Sweet Tooth card stock card base. I added Grassy Fields Die-namics cut from Limelight card stock, made clothesline poles from strips of Adhesive backed wood card stock and strung the clothesline and bows cut from Primitive White card stock.
Next I cut LLD Bundle of Baby Clothes from, left to right, Party Patterns and Petite Plaid paper pads and Grapesicle card stock. I popped them up on foam and added some clothespins, also cut from the wood card stock. To finish off I added Puffy Clouds Die-namics ‘cause If I’ve got a sky, I’m gonna have clouds ;-)
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 CTD548 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd548 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!
