Hi everyone, welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Amy Rysavy is challenging us to a gorgeous color combo based on her lovely and very Christmas-y inspiration piece.
I thought Festive Flamingos Stamp Set and Die-namics might be the starting place for this design and I love where it ended up. First I sponged my background with Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean Distress Inks and splattered with clean water for some “character”. That was adhered directly to a Sweet Tooth card stock base after it dried and I built on it. I cut Grassy Fields Die-namics from Gumdrop Green card stock and built the palm tree from Beach Scene Builder Die-namics using Sour Apple and Kraft card stock, all edges sponged with matching dye ink.
The image was stamped on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored with Copic markers. I cut a Sweet Tooth card stock front panel with Inside & Out Stitched Oval STAX, stamped the sentiment, and popped it up on foam tape after adding the strips of Grassy Fields die cut paper. The rest of the scene was assembled and finished off with some 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 CTD571 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd571 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!
