'Tis the Season to Celebrate - Color Throwdown Challenge #673


Hey there and welcome to a brand new--and the last for 2021--Color Throwdown Challenge! WHERE exactly has this year gone???? Can someone please tell me???? Yikes!! Anyway, Miss Broni is our hostess this week and she is challenging us with some gorgeous Christmas colors. Although my colors didn't photo as well as I might have wanted, I love how it turned out.

To begin, I used an image from Wonderful Woods for the base of my greenery swag, heat embossing it with silver detail embossing powder on No Line Coloring card stock. Next I decided where I wanted my ornaments and stamped them using BB Christmas Elves Stamp Set and colored them with Copic markers.

Once that was done I stamped the sentiment from Christmas Cardinals Stamp Set and hand drew the strings to the swag. I did not notice I missed one string until I was doing this blog post. Unfortunately the card has been sent so I can't fix it, but it's not the first card I've missed something on, LOL! 

The card front was popped up on foam tape on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with a strip of Black & White Stripes Patterned Paper across the bottom. Two images from Christmas Cardinals Stamp Set were stamped on No Line Coloring card stock, cut with the coordinating Die-namics, colored with Copic markers, and adhered on top of the swag with hot glue. A sweet little bow from baker's twine was added on top 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 #CTD673 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd673 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!
