Let's Go Make Some Fun–Color Throwdown Challenge #589

Hey, everyone, welcome to a new
Color Throwdown Challenge! Vickie is our hostess this week and she has chosen a classic color combo based on her gorgeous inspiration piece. Come on out and play with us this week!

Zippy Zebras Stamp Set and Die-namics instantly came to mind when I sat down to make this card. I mean they WOULD, right? I totally want one of those red scooters, man. Hopefully, one of these days we’ll be able to go out and make some fun with each other again, but until then we’ll have to live vicariously through this little guy :)

I started by sponging Gravel Gray dye ink through English Brick Wall Stencil on Sweet Tooth card stock for a background and laid down the ground with Copic markers. Then I stamped the sentiment from the set with Extreme Black hybrid ink and adhered the card front  on foam tape on a Gravel Gray card stock base.

Then I got to the fun part—I stamped the image on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut it out with the coordinating Die-namics, colored it up with Copic markers, and popped it up in the scene with foam tape for the finish.

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 CTD589 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd589 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!
