Sending Hugs - Color Throwdown Challenge #625


Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week our new team member, Susie Moore, is hosting and has a jewel-tone color combo base on her super fun inspiration piece.

I'm still in MFT January Release mode, LOL, so I used Heart Rays Die-namics and Bitty Hugs & Kisses Stamp Set from the release. To create my heart, I cut it from No Line Coloring card stock and colored the sections with Copic markers, then taped the pieces together on the back and set it aside.

Next, on a Sweet Tooth card stock panel, I stamped Distressed Patterns Stamp Set using Twisted Citron, Picked Raspberry, and Salty Ocean Distress inks along with Extreme Black hybrid ink. It was popped up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base on which I adhered a strip of Black & White Striped Patterned Paper with foam tape.

The colored Heart Rays element was popped up on foam along with the heat embossed sentiment strip using Bitty Hugs & Kisses Stamp Set on Black Licorice card stock cut with Skinny Strips Die-namics. I finished off with some enamel dots in the challenge colors.

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 #CTD625 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd625 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!
