Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown! This week Amy Rysavy is our hostess and she has some gorgeous, rich colors for us to play with.
I love Balloon Bundle Stamp Set and Die-namics from the MFT July Release! I thought they would be a good way to get all the colors in and can totally stand alone in a CAS design. First thing, I stamped the image on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut it out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored it with Copic markers—adding highlights with a white gel pen. I used Inward Elements Stencil to dry embossed a panel of Sweet Tooth card stock and adhered it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base.
Next I popped up the balloon image on the card front with foam tape and added Celebrate Die-namics, also popped up on foam. I finished off with some matching 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 CTD601 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd601 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!
