Hello, Pumpkin - Color Throwdown Challenge #666


Hello everyone, it's time for a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Lisa is our hostess and she has a decidedly Fall color palette for us to work with base on her adorable inspiration piece!

I hadn't had an opportunity to use Leaf Skeleton Background yet so I thought this would be the perfect time to do so. It was heat embossed on Ranger Watercolor paper with gold detail embossing powder and then a watercolor wash using Peerless Watercolors was applied. Once dry, it was adhered to a Kraft card stock base using Fun Foam (watercolor washes will often warp the paper and strips of foam tape don't give you a perfectly flat panel--Fun Foam takes care of that).

Next I cut Little Hello from Milk Chocolate and Gold Shine card stocks, glued them together and popped them up on the card front with foam tape. One pumpkin image from Autumn Blessing Stamp Set was stamped on No Line Coloring card stock with brown Copic-friendly ink and colored with Copics. It was fussy cut out and a tendril was added using floral wire colored brown then also added to the card front with foam tape.

To finish off, the sentiment, from Itty Bitty Boos Stamp Set was heat embossed on Milk Chocolate card stock cut with Itty Bitty Strips Die-namics and also popped up on foam.

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 #CTD666 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd666 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!
