Hello and welcome to a new Color Throwdown Challenge! Lori is out hostess this week and she has some Spring-y colors for us based on her super adorable and seasonal inspiration piece. Hope you’ll come and join us this week!
My card is fairly simple, starting with a heat embossed background using All Lined Up background on Cement Gray card stock. Next I cut and watercolored Stitched Flowers Die-namics, using the challenge colors. Once they were dry I splattered with clean water and once THAT dried with black acrylic in and a small art brush. While they were completely drying I created the sentiment, using Sweet Die-namics, cut from Black Licorice and Silver Sparkle card stocks and heat embossed parts of two sentiments from Essential Sentiments and More Essential Sentiments.
When all the components were done, I arranged and adhered them to the card front 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 CTD587 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd587 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 along with our April Guest Designer, Judy Rozema!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you soon!
