Color Throwdown #355


Color Throwdown #355 cropped

Hello friends!  We have another Color Throwdown challenge for you, and today Barbara is our hostess.  She’s going to cool down our summer temps with these shades of blue and gray…

swatch 355

Like Vickie’s purple a few weeks ago, I accused Bar of trying to torture me because I just don’t feel like blue and I get along very well.  But once I remembered that I had this sweet little elephant already colored, my card came together quite well!

Color Throwdown #355

This sweet guy is from the Wplus9 DesignUnforgettable” stamp set, and I used the matching die to cut out little Dumbo.  He’s colored with Copics and mounted to a Sno Cone card stock circle.  On the Lush Lagoon card stock strip that was cut with the Pierced Fishtail Flags STAX Die-Namics, I stamped a sentiment from the set and heat embossed.  The background was stamped with the BG Simply Circles background in Versamark ink then heat embossed with white detail embossing powder.  And on the Steel Blue card stock at the bottom I stamped the BG Diagonal Stripes background in Steel Grey hybrid ink.  (Card stock, dies and background stamps are all from My Favorite Things.)  I used the sketch again from CAS(E) this Sketch #135 for the layout.

Be sure to stop by the CTD blog for all the challenge details.  And visit my Throwdown sisters for more inspiration!
