Hello everyone and welcome to another Color Throwdown Challenge!!!! Monika is our hostess with the mostess this week and her colors and inspiration picture are simply stunning!!!! I took a pretty literal approach to the inspiration because I just love that big beautiful sunset!!!
My card features a Sweet n Sassy stamp set called The Sea. A circle cut from Eclipse Masking tape and was placed on a piece of white card stock The background was then brayered with Spiced Marmalade and Festive Berries Distress Inks. The tape was removed and the sun was sponged with So Saffron. Then the image and sentiment were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black...the twine is the finishing touch.
The sun kinda looks like it is floating on the water but the part under the water is supposed to be the reflection....just don't look too close...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 CTD281 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.
