Color Throwdown #352
Hello friends! It’s Wednesday, and time for another Color Throwdown challenge! This week, I’M the hostess and I hope you will love the colors I’ve chosen as much as I do!
Where I work, we always have to have a bunch of pens on the front desk and I love to check out the little pails in the $1 Spot at Target whenever I go in. I found this little bucket a few weeks ago, and the more I looked at it sitting there on my desk, the more I thought “hey, those would be some great colors to Throwdown!” So here you are…
I think you’ll find a lot of options with these colors… masculine, summery, nautical maybe? Have fun!
Here’s my card…
This is the second of three cards my neighbor asked me to make recently. She said her daughter loves nature and quilts, and all I could think of was how perfect these One with Nature stamps from Simon Says Stamp would be for the card! I stamped the leaves in Versamark on Ranger Distress Watercolor card stock, then heat embossed them with detail white embossing powder. Then over the leaves I applied a watercolor wash of Twisted Citron and Cracked Pistachio distress inks. After everything dried, I spattered the card stock with some Steel Grey dye ink from My Favorite Things, as well as some Perfect Pearls, and water. Then I die cut the Wishing die from Simon Says with Steel Blue and Steel Grey card stocks from MFT, and layered them to create a shadow effect. Under the die-cut I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink from the Sending and Wishing stamp set. A few sequins completed my design.
