It’s Wednesday again and time for the latest Color Throwdown challenge. The super-talented Jodi is our hostess this week and she’s chosen a beautiful inspiration photo and color combo for us to play with.
The colors are Dark Pink, Light Pink, Green and Kraft.
Sadly, I needed a sympathy/thinking of you card and decided to use my new Love You So Essentials by Ellen stamp set. I think this sentiment “You are here” accompanied by the heart is perfect for this type of card. Julie E really hit it out of the ballpark with her designs for this release!
I sprayed the Distress watercolor paper with water and then spritzed it with Distress Cracked Pistachio Spray Stain. After I dried it with my heat tool I repeated the process to get a more intense amount of color. After I dried it again, I inked up my heart from the same set with Picked Raspberry ink and spritzed it with a little bit of water then stamped it onto the watercolor paper. I wanted it to blend, but not too much. I stamped the sentiment with Versafine onyx black ink, added the twine and sequins, then adhered the panel to my kraft card base with foam mounting tape.

This is really a great color combo and I know you’ll love all the projects that my CTD sisters have prepared for you! Check them out below, then take some time to join us for this fun challenge!
