Sending You a Long Distance Hug - Color Throwdown Challenge #635


Hey there and welcome to a new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Susie is our hostess and she has chosen some Easter-ish colors to tempt us with. They look yummy, don't they??

I thought "rainbows!" when I first saw this color combo and thought there was no need to look or think further. I love MFT's Happy Rainbows Die-namics so got them out and started playing.

To begin, I sponged Broken China Distress Ink on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper, stamped the sentiment from I Miss Your Hugs Stamp Set with Extreme Black hybrid ink then adhered it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Happy Rainbows Die-namics was cut from Ranger Watercolor paper, colored with Peerless Watercolors and a water brush, spattered with black acrylic ink when dry, then adhered to the card front--some directly and some stacked with white card stock die cuts and then adhered for dimension.

I thought it needed just a little something else, so I added glitter enamel dots in the challenge colors to finish off. 

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 #CTD635 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd635 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!
