Hey there! Welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Lynn is challenging us with a decidedly Fall color palette. Hope to see lots of you playing along with us.
Some time ago, MFT had Triangle STAX Die-namics that I loved and used a lot for cards similar to today's! Sadly they were retired and I had no triangles to play with. I was looking at MSTN Cool Christmas Trees Die-namics with a mind to creating a Fall forest with them but once I realized it was chocked full of triangles of every size I changed course and went for one of my favorite graphic designs.
To begin, I adhered a panel of MSTN Black & White Plaid Patterned Paper to a Smooth White card stock base, then cut all the trees from MSTN Cool Christmas Trees Die-namics from Butterscotch, Orange Zest, and Moroccan Spice card stocks. I had so much fun arranging the triangles and once I was happy, they were adhered to the card front, mostly popped up on foam tape.
Once that was done, I heat embossed the sentiment from Itty Bitty Thanks on Black Licorice card stock cut with Itty Bitty Strips Die-namics and popped it up on foam tape, as well. Some enamel dots in the challenge colors finished it off.
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 #CTD718 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd718 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!
