Color Throwdown #365

Color Throwdown #365 cropped

It’s Wednesday so that must mean it’s time for another Color Throwdown challenge!  Broni is our hostess today, and she’ll have you clicking your heels three times and repeating “there’s no place like home…” with this inspiration photo for our colors today…

I really, really loved working with these colors today… SO fun!  I played with some fantastic new Reverse Confetti products for my card…

Color Throwdown #365

Using the October Sketch for You to Try (and taking some inspiration from Amy Rohl’s fabulous card here) I created my card using the new Wreaths and Holly Confetti Cuts dies.  I cut the wreath from silver glitter card stock, then used my Copic airbrush gun to color it a shade of hot pink.  The holly leaves were cut from gray card stock, and sprayed pretty heavily with some shimmer spray, as you can see in the photo up at the top of my post.  I also used the brand new Winter Words Confetti Cuts to cut the word “joy” from hot pink card stock, and colored it with a clear Wink of Stella pen.  The holly and “joy” were layered onto a vellum Tag Me Confetti Cuts tag.  The background was stamped in a pale gray ink using the Wide Stripes background stamp from Simon Says.

Please be sure to visit the CTD blog today for more inspiration, and visit my Throwdown sisters for more inspiration…
