Freshly made Color throwdown

Hi there!

Stepping out of my comfort zone , using unconventional colors to make a floral card!

I love the concept, but almost always choose realistic colors when I design a card. The design team at Color Throwdown really inspired me to give it a try :)

 I used :

  • Wallpaper-art-stamp-set from Altenew 
  • Quatrefoil stencil cut with my Silhouette using THIS free pattern from LOVEsvg
  • Distress Oxide inks and Altenew ink
  • Silhouette cameo to cut out the images
  • Misti
  • Craft foam for dimension
  • Rhinestones

Challenges :

Freshly made sketches ~ Sketch by Jen T (rotated)

Color throwdown  ~ Orange , blue and gray. The photo were a great guide on how to use the colors : Blue for the background, orange for the focal point and gray for the "accessories"

Simon says stamp ~ Anything goes


Thanks for visiting me today!

I would have been hesitant to try those colors, too, but they look great together!
