You Have a Heart of Gold–Color Throwdown Challenge #576

Hi there, welcome to a new
Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Lisa is our hostess and she’s challenging us to a lovely palette based on her cozy inspiration piece.

I decided to use gold for the mustard and I think it works wonderfully. First I did a watercolor wash background on Ranger Watercolor paper with Peerless Watercolors (the turquoise is more teal IRL) and after it dried splattered it with gold acrylic ink and popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam tape. Then I cut Hearts Entwined Die-namics from Gold Shine card stock and adhered it with spray adhesive.

The sentiment is from Smitten with You Stamp Set and I’ve been wanting to use it since I got the set so I thought this was perfect. It was heat embossed with gold detail embossing powder on Black Licorice card stock cut with Skinny Strips Die-namics and adhered with foam tape for dimension. I finished off with some enamel dots and 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 CTD576 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd576 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!
