Sending Prayers - Color Throwdown Challenge #677


Hey there, it's time for a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Lori is our hostess and she has some Spring-like hues for us to play with.

Even though the colors say Spring, I'm not ready to give up Winter yet--yeah, I know, I'm a freak, LOL! I thought the pink and purple would be perfect for a Winter sunset so that's where I went. So, to begin, I sponged Spun Sugar, Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet Distress Inks on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper, then stamped Wonderful Woods Stamp Set using Jalapeño Popper and Milk Chocolate dye inks then adhered the panel to a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam tape.

Next I added Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics, cut from Sweet Tooth card stock, also adhered with foam tape for dimension after stamping the sentiment from Deepest Sympathy Stamp Set with Milk Chocolate dye ink and finished off with some matching glitter enamel dots.

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 #CTD677 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd677 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!
