Color Throwdown 191


It's hard to believe another Wednesday is here already and that means we have a new Color Throwdown Challenge for you! This week, it's the talented Lynn Put bringing us some great colors!  When I saw the 3 shades of blue, I knew I wanted to try this sponging/masking technique that is so predominant in SCS' Featured Stamper gallery this week: Heather Telford (or Heather T as she's known on SCS).  I masked off the 2" wide stripe and sponged with Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise & Pool Party.  I then stamped the silhouette images in Elegant Eggplant and Certainly Celery from PTI's "Life" set.  The sentiment flag stamp is by 'Lil Inker Designs.  I seldom do one layer cards, but loved how this turned out and hope to do more of this technique in the future!


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 CTD191 as your keyword.

So...are you ready to be inspired?? Check out what the other CTD designers, along with our talented May guestie, Kittie Caracciolo, have created by clicking HERE!
