Hello and welcome to a new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week my girl Jodi is hostess and she’s challenging us to use the colors in her gorgeous inspiration piece.
I’ve been wanting to use this adorable crab from the recently released MFT Best Fins Stamp Set and Die-namics and thought this would be a great time to bring it out.
To begin, I did a little watercolor wash on Ranger Watercolor Paper with Peerless Watercolors and popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Then I stamped the crab and coral images on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut them out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored them with Copic markers.
Next I added a strip of Fun in the Sun Paper Pack with the perfect colors, added the sentiment strip, heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock cut with Skinny Strips Die-namics, popped up on foam, then finished up by adding the colored images, also on foam.
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 CTD605 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd605 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!
