Stay Awesome - Color Throwdown Challenge #632


Hello there and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge!!! I'm hosting this week and I'm bringing you a bit of Spring so I hope to see a lot of you playing along with us!

I'm using Lavish Lilies Stamp Set from MFT for this CAS card. To be more realistic, I went more on the orange side of the color spectrum for them but I love the way they turned out--they were fun to color!

To begin, I did a watercolor wash on Ranger Watercolor Paper with peerless Watercolors then spattered with clean water and black acrylic ink. Once dry, I layered it with Translucent Vellum then adhered it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam tape. 

Then the colored image was popped up on foam tape on the card front and a sentiment from Essential Sentiments was heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock cut with Skinny Strips Die-namics, then also popped up on foam tape as well.

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 #CTD632 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd632 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!
