Wishing You a Very Merry Christmas - Color Throwdown Challenge #616


Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge!! This week Lisa is our hostess and I absolutely LOVE the color combo she has chosen for us base on her warm and cozy inspriation piece!

I hadn't used the recently released MFT Four Corners Background stamp so I got it out and heat embossed with gold detail embossing powder on Ranger Watercolor paper and then did a watercolor wash with Peerless watercolors. Once dry, I popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam tape.

Next I cut Translucent Vellum with Stitched Mini Scallop Rectangle STAX Die-namics and heat embossed, also with gold powder, Wishing You a Very Merry Christmas Stamp Set which I adhered directly to the card front with spray adhesive. 

Next I cut Holly Berries Die-namics--the leaves from Kraft card stock and the berries from No Line Coloring card stock--and colored them up with Copic markers. The holly was adhered with hot glue and I was done!

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 #CTD616 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!
