Color Throwdown Challenge #265


Hello everyone....it's my turn to host the Color Throwdown Challenge this week!! When I saw the beautiful tree picture, I just knew we had to use these colors!!! The colors can be used for any season of the year so the sky is the limit...have fun!!!



My card features stamps from the Paper Smooches Autumn Groves set....the trees were all stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa onto white card stock. The Crisp Cantaloupe and Baked Brown Sugar ink pads were run across the trees to mimic the inspiration picture. They were cutout and before they were adhered to the card, a wash of Not Quite Navy reinker and water was painted on the background and a frame was drawn on with a brown marker. The trees were glued on and the leaves from Paper Smooches Fanciful Fall set were popped up with foam dots and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches Sentiment SamplerCan you believe I didn't add a single embellishment...I must be sick...LOL!!!! 

Remember, you don't have to use the exact colors.....use what you have as long as they are close to the challenge colors and be sure to add CTD265 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!!
