Color Throwdown #285
Hello friends… it’s Wednesday again, which means we’ve got another Color Throwdown challenge to share with you, and Broni is our hostess! I hope you like the colors she chose as much as we all do, and will play along!
I decided to get a little over-inked with my card this week…
I created the background of my piece by mixing Shabby Shutters and Spun Sugar distress inks on the paper, and spritzing with some Old Paper mixed with water for a watercolor-y look. I also sponged some Old Paper ink over a hexagon stencil on the lower right, and added some leaves stenciled on the upper left. Then over everything I applied a layer of translucent embossing paste with a polka dot stencil. Then I went to work with my Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose Die-Namics from My Favorite Things, and a Mini Rolled Rose, along with some Royal Leaves and Leaf-Filled Flourish. The sentiment from Essential Sentiments was stamped on a Fishtail Flags STAX Die-Namics using some Rich Cocoa ink. I added a few gold sequins for embellishment, and called it done! :) The layout for my card was inspired by the Cardabilities sketch #95.
Please be sure to visit the CTD blog for all the challenge details, and visit my Throwdown sisters for more inspiration…
