Hi everyone, welcome to a new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week’s colors have a definite Autumn vibe, chosen by Lynn based on this gorgeous inspiration piece.
I truly love Joyful Wreath Die-namics from the recent MFT Release and I’m here to show you it’s not just for Christmas. First I have to admit I spaced out and used a Sweet Tooth card stock base—should have been a cream colored base. To created the wreath I cut it three times from Sweet Tooth card stock and sponged each one with a different ink. I used Gathered Twigs, Carved Pumpkin, and Bundled Sage Distress Inks and cut two of the wreaths into “fronds”. It’s easier to fill in that way. Then I adhered on wreath on the card front and added the “fronds” one at a time to make it fuller.
The berries were cut from Orange Zest card stock and adhered to the wreath. The sentiment is from Bitty Thanks & Gratitude and was heat embossed with gold detail embossing powder on Milk Chocolate card stock cut with Fishtail Flag Trio Die-namics. I popped that up on foam tape and finished off with some gold glitter enamel dots.
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 CTD568 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd568 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 November Guest Designer, Michelle Lupton!
