Season’s Greetings–Color Throwdown Challenge #569

Hi everyone, welcome to another
Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Vickie is our hostess and she has chosen some colors based on this romantic inspiration piece.

It’s a challenge to me to see if I can get a Christmas card out of any color combo, LOL!! This one was easy with the green. First I used Jellybean Green and Sour Apple die inks and Hand-Lettered Holiday Greetings Stamp Set to create my pine bough on No Line Coloring card stock, then I stamped the ornament from BB Santa’s Elves Stamp Set with Extreme Black hybrid ink along with the sentiment, from Hand Lettered Holiday Stamp Set.

I colored the ornaments with Copic markers, drew the string with a black Copic Multiliner, and added highlights with a white gel pen and popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam tape for the finish! Easy peasy!

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 CTD569 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd569 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!

  1. Great card! The beautiful impact hit me at first glance, and I love that it is a perfect (flat) card, which I need for mailing Christmas cards. Thanks for the inspiration!
