Hello friends! As my blog post title indicates today is my last day as a guest designer for Color Throwdown. I have had so much fun being the guest designer and it has helped me improve my coloring skills! A big thank you to the gals at Color Throwdown for having me! I started the month with a pumpkin card and I'm ending the month with a pumpkin card. This time a teal one! The CTD colors for this week are teal, rust, olive and navy. When I saw the colors I immediately decided that I wanted to color up a teal pumpkin! In my first CTD post I indicated that I was inspired to create my pumpkin based on a Reverse Confetti stamp set that I didn't own. Well.... now I do own that stamp set and I used it for my card today. I practiced my no line watercoloring and used distress inks in Antique Linen, Rusty Hinge, Peacock Feathers, Chipped Sapphire. The images were stamped with the Antique Linen on Canson watercolor cardstock and then die cut with the matching dies when I was done with my coloring. I went heavy with the teal and used the other colors in smaller amounts and maybe should have used one of the other colors a little more, but overall I really like how the pumpkin turned out. The layout is based on the current Sunday Stamps challenge so I will be posting it there. Below is all the information regarding how to play along with this week's challenge.
Once you’ve finished your card or other paper-crafted project, add a direct link to your creation using the Inlinkz tool at the bottom of the Color Throwdown post. And, don’t forget to use the keyword CTD567 if you upload your project to an online gallery, or hashtag on social media with #ctd567 and/or #colorthrowdown.
The rest of the team...
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you will play along with Color Throwdown this week!
