So Thankful for You - Color Throwdown Challenge #620


Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Wanda is our hostess and she has a fun color combo for us to play with.

I mentioned when Falling Leaves Die-namics was in the last Vault Release that they are so versatile and I'm here to prove it. They are the perfect accent for so many styles and designs. For this card, I cut them from Ranger Watercolor paper, applied Peerless Watercolors, spattered with clean water and black acrylic ink with gold pigment ink brushed on the edges. 

The background was created by sponging Tumbled Glass Distress ink on Strathmore Bristol Smooth card stock then popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with a strip of Black & White Stripes Patterned Paper along one side. To add some interest, I cut A2 Rectangle Frames from birch wood sheet and popped them up on foam in a staggered pattern.

Next I adhered the leaves and a sentiment from Bitty Thanks and Gratitude Stamp Set heat embossed with gold detail embossing powder on Black Licorice card stock cut with Skinny Strips Die-namics.

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 #CTD620 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd620 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!
