I created a Color Throwdown Challenge card. This was the pallette:
I took my chevron stencil and used round spongers to blot and blend the ink onto my cardstock. I added some Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Marker over the colored chevron for some sparkle.
I added some Recollections and Making Memories paper flowers for a corner accent and brought in more of the red color with Doodlebug acrylic letter tiles. They spell out “luv”.
The card looked a little too simple and so I added some silver foil paper from the Michael’s Recollection brand. If you don’t have silver foil paper, you could easily use plain paper and use silver embossing powder to create those strips of paper. I used my Xyron and some Tombow Mono Multi Glue to adhere the silver strips, and I preferred the Xyron strips. The Tombow didn’t work as good for this application in my opinion.
I stamped a happy birthday sentiment with my Avery Elle Cake and Candles stamp set onto some scrap vellum I had in my stash. I cut the banner shape and used glue dots to dug the sentiment banner under the flowers.
I used my Cropadile 1/2″ corner chomper to round the corners. I like the way the banner stands out a bit, and this pale red color and the turquoise offset each other nicely.
This one had me stumped at first, so I enjoyed the color combination since I wanted to use it for something other than a patriotic theme. I have a glitter chevron that I rejected for this challenge that I think I will finish up and post soon.
Thanks Color Throwdown for the inspiration!
