Happy Birthday, Handsome - Color Throwdown Challenge #704


Hey there, it's time for a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Today's challenge is brought to us by Amy Rohl based on her decidedly masculine hued inspiration piece.

Since I felt these colors were on the masculine side that's what I went with, pulling out MSTN Mustache Trio Di-namics and MSTN Super Stache Stamp Set. 

To begin, I stamped white card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink and Happy Birthday Background, in a bit of a rustic manner then stamped the sentiment with Jalapeño Popper dye ink and adhered it to a Jalapeño Popper card stock base.

Next I cut mustaches from Black Licorice, Cement Gray, and Milk Choolate card stocks, drew some pencil lines to add a few highlights, and popped them up on the card front with foam tape. I was sort of stumped with the color combo at first, but once I decided to go the masculine route, this card came together in a snap!

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 #CTD704 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd704 and #colorthrowdown on social media. Hope to see you there!
