Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Lori is our hostess and she has some warm Autumnal colors to challenge us with based on this lovely inspiration piece.
I hadn’t used Garden Flourish Background in some time and I thought embossing it with gold detail embossing powder would be a great background if I sponged these colors. And I was right—it just shines through them! Once the background was done the rest was a piece of cake!
I embossed it on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper and then sponged with Crushed Olive, Fired Brick, Peacock Feathers, and Salty Ocean Ranger Distress inks then popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base after cutting it out with A2 Rectangle STAX Set 2
The sentiment was created by heat embossing part of a sentiment from Bitty Thanks & Gratitude on Tangy Orange card stock, cut with Skinny Strips Die-namics, with more gold detail embossing powder and adhering directly to the card front. I finished it by using Thanks & Hello Die-namics, cut from Gold Sparkle card stock, layered with two copies from scraps, and adhered with glue on top of the sentiment strip.
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 CTD567 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd567 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 super talented October Guest Designer, Rosemary Dennis!
