Hi all, and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Today’s hostess is Miss Vickie and she has an interesting color combo for us today based on her gorgeous inspiration piece.
I say interesting because I found it to be QUITE the challenge! Could be because I’m stamping last minute lately and I HATE stamping last minute. I like to be WAAAAAY ahead and usually am—this last minute stuff is stressful, LOL! But I pulled out a stamp set from MFT’s February release that I hadn’t used and made quick work of it. I stamped Happy Happy Happy Birthday Stamp Set twice on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink and colored in the pink and light blue. Then I stamped the “birthday” with Blueberry to satisfy the dark blue requirement and that was that.
Then I adhered a piece of patterned paper from Birthday Brights Paper Pack to a Sweet Tooth card stock base and popped up the card front on foam tape after tying around some dark blue baker’s twine. I finished off with some enamel dots in the challenge colors and called it 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 CTD579 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd579 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!
