I Sea It's Your Birthday - Color Throwdown Challenge #652


Hey there and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week I'm the hostess and I hope you'll join us! My colors this week are in memory of all our yearly trips to Belize--that didn't happen last year or this. This scene reminds me SO much of where we stay and I couldn't resist a little trip down memory lane. Hopefully next year.

To begin, I cut almost all of the elements in Beach Scene Builder Die-namics from Ranger Watercolor paper then watercolored them with Peerless Watercolors and a waterbrush. Once dry, I spattered with clean water and more ink and set them aside.

Next, I created my sky using Lazy Day dye ink and Mini Cloud Edges Stencil on Sweet Tooth card stock then adhered it directly to a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Then I added all the watercolored elements, most popped up on foam with a few adhere directly for dimension. The three boats from You Keep Me Afloat Stamp Set were stamped on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut with the coordinating Die-namics, colored with Copic markers, and popped up in the scene with foam.

When in Belize, we see a few planes flying by with message banner, which  inspired me to do the same. I cut Banner Flags Die-namics from Sweet Tooth and Kraft card stocks, stamped the sentiment from You Keep Me Afloat Stamp Set, and adhered it with 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 #CTD652 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd652 and #colorthrowdown on social media. Hope to see you there!
