Hey, everyone, welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week our hostess is Lori and she’s challenging us to this interesting color combo based on her inspiration piece.
I say interesting because it uses orange and red so after a little brainstorming about it I came up with this serene winter scene for another Christmas card. I started by sponging Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass, Spiced Marmalade Ranger Distress Inks on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper for my background. Then I added Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics cut from Sweet Tooth card stock and Birch Trees Die-namics sponged with Kraft dye ink and backed with strips of Kraft card stock, some popped up on foam, some not.
I stamped the sentiment from Trio of Trees Stamp Set with Black Licorice dye ink and cut two cardinals from Delightful Deer Die-namics—one male and one female, which worked brilliantly with the color scheme. I popped them up on small bits of foam on branches and was done!
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 CTD517 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd517 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, along with our super talented Guest Designer, Biggan!
