Hello everyone! This week is my turn to host the Color Throwdown Challenge and I'm happy to bring you this picture for color inspiration!
I took the interpretation a bit further and also used twine and spring blossoms from the photo to add as elements to my card. This was my first attempt at using this Grand Madison Window die and I opted to be on the outside looking in. I created the weathered wood look for the window by starting with vanilla CS, scoring every inch and then swiping Tea Dye distress ink and a bit of Aegean Blue VersaChalk ink over it lightly. Images were all colored with Copics and flower centers and chandelier were highlighted with Stickles. The dogwood was fussy cut and popped with foam dots.
We'd love to have you join us! No worries if you don't have the exact colors... feel free to substitute colors that are close! Make a card or paper crafted project and post it to your blog or online gallery. Then use the direct link and link it to the Color Throwdown blog using the Inlinkz tool at the bottom of the CTD post. If you post to an online gallery, please use CTD183 as your keyword.
So...are you ready to be inspired?? Check out what the Color Throwdown Designers, along with our talented March guestie, Bev Gerard, have created!
