Merry and Bright–Color Throwdown Challenge #612

Hi all and welcome to a brand new
Color Throwdown Challenge! I’m hosting this week so I hope to see lots of you playing along with us!

I wasn’t done with Merry & Bright, MFT’s just released September Card Kit so I decided to use it on this card. To begin, I cut the lights from Tangy Orange, Sno Cone, and Blue Breeze card stocks, covered them all with a coat of clear Wink of Stella, then with a coat of Nuvo Crystal Glaze and set them aside to dry.

Next I dry embossed Sweet Tooth card stock with Radiating Rays Stencil and popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base. I cut the light string from Gold Sparkle card stock and adhered it to the card front along with Merry & Bright Stamp Set heat embossed with Gold Detail embossing powder and cut with Phrase Builders Die-namics, popped up on foam.

Once the lights were dry, I added a Gold Sparkle socket and popped them up on foam as well. To finish off I added some matching sequins.

Here you can see the shimmer from the Wink of Stella.

And here the shine of the Nuvo glaze.

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 #CTD612 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd612 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!
