Thanks a Melon–Color Throwdown Challenge #600

Hey, everyone, it’s time for a new
Color Throwdown Challenge! It’s challenge number 600!! What a milestone this is! Can’t believe we’ve been around this long, and we’re committed to keep on keeping on! This week’s hostess is Wanda and she has a refreshing Summertime color palette for us, based on her COOL inspiration piece.

I had to use this PI Sweet Summertime stamp set and Die-namics this week—I mean, it was screaming for it, amirite?? The image was stamped on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored with Copic markers with a little paper piecing going on.  The sentiment was stamped at the bottom of the card front made from Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper and stenciled with Shabby Shutters and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks through Oval Extraordinaire and Mini Cloud Edges Stencils.

The card front was matted with Jellybean Green card stock, popped up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base, and finished off with some enamel dots.

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 CTD600 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd600 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!
