Merci - Color Throwdown Challenge #648


Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Today Lynn is our hostess and she's chosen a gorgeous color palette for us to play with!

I hadn't had a chance to play with BB Mon Chéri Stamp Set and Die-namics from the just released Birdie Brown sets in MFT's June Vault Release so I got her out for this card. I began by sponging my late afternoon sky using Spiced Marmalade and Concord Gray Distress Inks on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper and adhered it directly to a Sweet Tooth card stock base. to add more dimension, I added some Sour Apple card stock cut with Grassy Hills Die-namics. Next I spread molding paste on Cement Gray card stock after cutting it with Window Dressing Die-namics and set it aside to dry.

Then I stamped the images on No Line Coloring card stock, cut them out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored them all with Copic markers. By this time the background was dry, I completed the "bakery" window and popped the brick element up on foam tape on the card base. The sidewalk was cut from Cement Gray card stock and also adhered with foam tape after the sentiment was stamped on it with Extreme Black hybrid ink.

At this point the only thing left to do was to finish adding the stamped and colored images and it was done! I'd love to be walking down this sidewalk and see that window full of cupcakes, how about you?

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.
