Love You More - Color Throwdown Challenge #639


Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Vickie is our hostess and she's chosen a color palette that's almost mono-chromatic for us to play with.

I hadn't had a chance to use the recently-released Watercolor Wash Stencil from MFT so today was the day and I love it!! You'll be seeing this one more for sure! To begin, on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper, I sponged, left to right, Amarena Cherry, Moroccan Spice, Butterscotch, and Kraft die inks. Once dry I spattered with clean water and gold and black acrylic inks.

I cut Hey Die-namics from Gold Sparkle card stock and two copies from white scraps and layered them with spray adhesive. The sentiment, from Heart Burst Hellos Stamp Set, was heat embossed with gold detail embossing powder on Black Licorice card stock cut with Skinny Strips Die-namics. 

The background was adhered directly to a Sweet Tooth card stock base, the sentiment strip and Hey die cut adhered, and I finished off with the little heart cut from Amarena Cherry card stock.

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 #CTD639 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd639 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!
