Welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge!! This week I am the hostess and I’m challenging everyone to use these colors pulled from my gorgeous inspiration piece. It could be a bit of a monochromatic color palette, I guess, with added neutrals. I hope to see you playing along with us this week!
To begin, I stamped Poppy Background on No line Coloring card stock because I wasn’t sure if I was going to color any of those poppies or not. I ended up only coloring the images from Poppy Blooms stamp set and fussy cut them out. I adhered the background panel on a Sweet Tooth card stock base then popped up the colored images on foam tape. Next I added a sentiment from Bitty Thanks & Gratitude Stamp Set, heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock cut with Skinny Strips Die-namics.
I added Little Hello Die-namics, cut from Cement Gray card stock and Translucent Vellum along with some matte dots to finish off.
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 CTD562 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd562 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!
