Color Throwdown Challenge #219


Hello everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!  The wonderful Ms. Tammy is our hostess this week and she picked some beautiful colors for us to play with!!! At first I was a little intimidated with this color palette but now I love it!!! It's just perfect for a Christmas card!!! 


I used Rubbernecker's Fireplace set....the fireplace and wreath were stamped on the white card stock and colored with Copics. They were then masked and the background was stamped with Rubbernecker's Screen background with Soft sky ink. The stockings, candle sticks, and the fire/logs/grate were all colored with Copics and popped up with foam dots. I drew in the floor to give it a finished look.


Be sure to add CTD219 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
