Color Throwdown Challenge #280


Hello everyone and welcome to another Color Throwdown Challenge!!!! Melody is our hostess this week and she has picked some fun colors to play with!!! I had to think on this combo a day or two and then a light bulb went off in my little brain...the soft sky reminded me of a Ball jar.  Sooooo.....


I pulled out my Paper Smooches Crystal Clear set!! The jar was stamped on soft sky card stock with soft sky ink and sponged with soft sky around the edges. Several of the flower stems were stamped off and then stamped on the jar to look like the flowers were in the jar. The flowers were stamped with night of navy and the leaves were stamped with old olive. They were all cutout and adhered to the back of the jar before it was adheres to the background paper with foam dots. 


The striped piece was stamped with old olive, cutout, and adhered under the jar and the sentiment was stamped on  vanilla card stock and sewing was done along the side. The hemp cording and button finish it off. 

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 CTD280 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!!

You can find out all the challenge details on the Color Throwdown Blog.
