Thank You - Color Throwdown Challenge #693


Hello, it's time for a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Broni is our hostess and she's chosen a cool palette for us to work with. Hope to see you playing along!

I decided to let a die cut do the talkin' on this card in the form of Thank You Die-namics. I cut Gold Sparkle card stock once and scrap white card stock twice, stacked them with spray adhesive and set it aside.

Next, I did a watercolor wash on Ranger Watercolor paper using Peerless Watercolors and a water brush. I then spattered with clean water and gold acrylic ink, and once dry, adhered it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam tape.

The die cut sentiment was adhered directly to the card front and I finished off with some 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 #CTD693 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd693 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!
