Color Throwdown #306
It’s time for Color Throwdown #306, and this week Cindy has some great colors for us, inspired by the wonderful blueberries in season right now!
This is a color combo a little outside the box for me but I ended up just loving it! GREAT choice, Cindy!
Here’s my card, using some new goodies from My Favorite Things…
I pulled out the awesome Geek is Chic Glasses Die-Namics, and cut two from Nightshift Blue card stock. And I stamped the sentiment from the new CS Eye Charts stamp set in Nightshift Blue premium dye ink on Whip Cream card stock, then die cut with the Pierced Rectangle STAX Die-Namics. On the Grapesicle card stock background, I used the new Jumbo Polka Dot stencil to emboss. The layout for my card was inspired by the current Sweet Sunday Sketch #232, but I turned it to accommodate the longer panel with the eye chart. On the right side I added a Nightshift Blue card stock flag from the Mix & Match Banners die set, and the flag was stamped with the BG Grid background in Whip Cream pigment ink.
Be sure to stop over at the CTD blog for all the challenge details, and please join us this week! Also be sure to see my Throwdown sisters for more inspiration…
