You Are So Loved - Color Throwdown Challenge #676


Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Miss Broni is our hostess and she's challenging us to a classic color combo. Hope to see lots of you playing along with us this week!

I hadn't had a chance to use the recently-released MFT You Are So Loved Stamp Set and I thought it would be perfect for this color palette. To begin, I stamped it in Versamark on Ranger Watercolor paper and heat embossed with gold detail embossing powder, then applied a watercolor wash using Peerless Watercolors over the embossing. 

Once all that was dry I spattered with clean water and gold and black acrylic inks, allowing it to dry in between each application. Once all THAT was dry I added a piece of Fun Foam to the back, just a smidge smaller than the card front panel. Watercolor washes really warp your paper and this helps flatten it out, especially if you're wanting the "popped up" look that I so love. Next I adhered that to a piece of Black & White Stripes Patterned Paper and then to a Chantilly Cream card stock base 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 #CTD676 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd676 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!
