Merry and Bright - Color Throwdown Challenge #617


Hey there and welcome to a new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Lori is our hostess and she has a festive color combo for us to work with,

So, this color combo is not a holiday one, per se, but I love to challenge myself to use unconventional colors in holiday cards. To begin, I sponged Kraft dye ink on Strathmore Bristol card stock, stamped the sentiment from Merry and Bright Stamp Set and the cords from Party Lights stamp set with Extreme Black hybrid ink, and popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam tape.

Next I cut Party Lights Die-namics from Electric Red, Gumdrop Green, and Limelight card stocks and popped them up on the card front with bits of foam tape.

So tickled with how these colors translated to a holiday card! 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 #CTD617 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd616 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!
