Warmest Wishes–Color Throwdown Challenge #574

Hello and welcome to the first
Color Throwdown Challenge of 2020!! Happy New Year to everyone—hope to see you all playing along this week! This week our hostess is Amy Rohl and she has a classic color combo based on her lovely wintry inspiration piece.

I decided to go with the inspiration piece and create a snowy outdoor scene as well. I started with a Grout Gray card stock panel, added Birch Trees Die-namics, cut from Sweet Tooth card stock and adhered, a couple popped up on foam for dimension. Then I added Snow Drifts Die-namics cut from more Sweet Tooth card stock with the sentiment, from Snow Globe Greetings stamped with Extreme Black hybrid ink.

Next I stamped the cardinal from Reindeer Games stamp set, cut it out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored it with Copic markers. Next I stamped the tree limb from BB Squirrel! stamp set, masking off the leaves, fussy cut it out, and colored it with Copic markers too. To finish off I only had to adhere the limb with foam and then the cardinal, also with foam, and it was done!

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 CTD574 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd574 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 January Guest Designer, Amy Tsuruta, who is joining us for another month since we only had two challenges in December!
