Good Luck - Color Throwdown Challenge #626


Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Lisa is hosting this week and has a fun color combo base on her retro vibe inspiration piece.

I love Ranger Watercolor paper because it's snow white but I needed a cream color watercolor paper for this card. Luckily I had some in my stash--I think it's Stampin' Up but now sure. I heat embossed Baccarat Background (keeping the retro vibe going) with silver detail embossing powder then applied a watercolor wash with Peerless Watercolors. 

I matted this with Black Licorice card stock and adhered it to a Chantilly Cream card stock base with foam tape. Chantilly Cream is gorgeous! REALLY creamy and a wonderful weight. Next I cut Good Luck Greetings Die-namics from Silver Sparkle card stock and twice from Black Licorice card stock and stacked them together with spray adhesive. 

I heat embossed a sentiment from Good Luck Greetings Stamp Set on Black Licorice card stock, cut with Skinny Strips Die-namics, with silver detail embossing powder and adhered it directly to the card front. The stacked die cut sentiment was adhered above that and I finished off with some glitter enamel dots.

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 #CTD626 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd626 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!
