Warm Winter Hugs - Color Throwdown Challenge #720


Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Wanda is our hostess and she has challenged us to a gorgeous color palette based on the equally gorgeous inspiration piece. 

I almost immediately got an idea for this challenge and went to work. I started by stamping Snowflake Flurry Background on Kraft card stock, cut the sides with Torn Paper Edges Die-namics, and adhered it to a Smooth White card stock base. Next, I cut Coffee Mug Die-namics from No Line Coloring cad stock and colored it with Copic markers to resemble a copper mug.

I adhered Stackable Snowflakes Die-namics, cut from Smooth White card stock, on the card front, then popped up the copper mug on foam tape. DBD Winter Greenery was stamped with Extreme Black hybrid ink and Iced Spruce Distress Ink, colored with Copic markers and nestled around the bottom of the mug.

The sentiment, from This Hugs's for You Stamp Set was heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock then popped up on foam tape 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 #CTD720 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd720 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!
