You are My Happy Place - Color Throwdown Challenge #638


Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge!! This week's hostess is Lynn and she has a Spring-has-sprung color palette for us to play with! Hope to see you joining us this week!

I used the photo for inspiration as well as the colors for my card today. I'm using MFT's just-released BB Sittin' Pretty Stamp Set and Die-namics and was further inspired by sentiment from More Essential Sentiments.

To begin, I stenciled molding paste through English Brick Wall Stencil on Sweet Tooth card stock and adhered it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base when dry. I went back later and added Cement Gray dye ink to give it just a little more definition.

Next I stamped the images with Extreme Black hybrid ink on No Line Coloring card stock and colored them with Copic markers.

The sentiment was stamped on Sour Apple card stock cut with Grassy Fields Die-namics. The door image was sandwiched between the two pieces and foam tape was used for dimension. The remaining images were popped up on foam for the finish.

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!
