Color Throwdown challenge #ctd445

Hello crafty friends!

This week I came across the @colorthrowdown Instagram feed, where they have weekly challenges using specific colors for each card project every week and I decided to hop right in and get started with a matching card.


Go and have a look on their blog for all the other participants and more projects.


This week’s colors are navy, light pink, gold and white and I really love the combination, so this is how I created my card.


I painted the navy blue background with my Gansai Tambi water colors using blues #66, #67, black #20 and gold #91 for the speckles.

I just love gold accents on projects, makes everything just special and is easily done with embossing powder, ink, sequins or paints.


I stamped and gold embossed 2 1 3/4×1 3/4″ white squares with the painted blooms stamp set by Dovecraft, which I layed on 2 2×2″ gold mirror card squares.


The stamped flowers are colored with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. For the leaves I used greens CG1, CG2, DG2 and for the flower itself I used PP3 and my colorless blender as I wanted to keep the pink as light as possible.


Then I cut them out and assembled everything on my white card base, which is just a standard A2 size. I used double sided tape for it and popped one of the flowers on foam tape to give it more dimension.



Thanks for stopping by!

Till the next time
