Hello, it's time for a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Amy Rysavy is our hostess this week and she has a gorgeous color palette for us, based on her very cool inspiration piece.
Of course, I decided to use MFT's August Card Kit die for my card today. Sunflower Wreath and Blessed Die-namics make an impressive focal point, don't you agree? To begin, I cut all the wreath components (colors listed below), then assembled with On-Point Precision Glue and hot glue. Blessed Die-namics was cut three times from Black Licorice card stock and stacked with spray adhesive.
Next, I sponged Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper with Caribbean Sea dye ink, spattered with clean water, then sprinkled with black acrylic ink. Once dry, I stamped the sentiment from Inside & Out Gratitude Stamp Set and adhered the card front to a Smooth White card stock base.
Finishing off was just a matter of popping the wreath up on the card front with foam tape and adhering Blessed Die-namics with more On-Point Precision Glue.
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 #CTD711 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd711 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!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you soon!
