Hello, Beautiful - Color Throwdown Challenge #630


Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Today Wanda is our hostess and she has chosen some gorgeous colors for us to play with this week.

I wanted to see how the just released MFT Wild Poppies Stamp Set would look in pastel shades so this was the perfect time to try it out! to begin, I heat embossed the image on No Line Coloring card stock with gold detail embossing powder and cut it out with the coordinating Die-namics.

Next I colored the image with Copic markers and popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base on which I'd spattered gold acrylic ink, then added a few glitter enamel dots.

The sentiment from the set was also heat embossed on Sweet Tooth card stock cut with the also just-released Elegant Folded Banner Die-namics, then popped up on foam tape.

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 #CTD630 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd630 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!
