Believe in Miracles - Color Throwdown Challenge #636


Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Lisa is our hostess this week and she has a gorgeous monochromatic color combo for us to play with.

I immediately thought of this recently-released set from MFT for this card. More Brilliant Butterflies was perfect for the two pinks and Chantilly Cream card stock for the card base completed the challenge colors.

To begin, the lacy part of the butterflies (so beautifully intricate!) was heat embossed with gold detail embossing powder then cut out with the coordinating Die-namics. Placing them back into the card stock from which there were cut and putting it back into my MISTI made short work of stamping the two pinks accurately.

The sentiment, from Have Hope Stamp Set was also heat embossed with gold detail embossing powder on a panel of Sweet Tooth card stock, spattered with gold acrylic ink, and popped up on foam tape on a Chantilly Cream card stock base. Once the butterflies were also adhered with foam tape it 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 #CTD636 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd636 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!
