Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! I’m hosting this week and I hope to see lots of you playing along with us! It’s the end of February, cold, windy, damp, I thought this warm weather scene might help us escape reality for little while ;-)
I started by sponging my background with Broken China Distress Ink on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper. Then I spattered it with some clean water and some black acrylic ink then stamped it with the sentiment from Flowers in Bloom Stamp Set and Extreme Black hybrid ink. It was matted with Black Licorice card stock and popped up on a Kraft card stock base with foam tape.
Next I stamped Flowers in Bloom Stamp Set on No Line Coloring card stock and Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut it out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored it with Copic markers in the challenge colors. Once it was adhered to the card front with foam tape 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 CTD582 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd582 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!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you soon!
