Happy morning to you all! I'm thrilled to post today as a guest designer for The Color Throwdown Challenge Blog. This project from a couple of weeks ago was randomly chosen, so I have the pleasure of joining this talented group of ladies in this weeks challenge using these fabo-fun colors!
So retro and vintage-y!
I couldn't stop playing with the colors so you don't get just one card today, you get three!
This next card uses MFT's Cozy Mittens set and Nordic Knits to create an interactive shaker card. My first shaker card ever!! I struggled with how much shaker material to add and added just a pinch more than necessary. Oh well, lesson learned, "Less is More" when it comes to shaker cards. I also used Blueprints #20, Spellbinders Scalloped Squares and Spellbinders Poinsettia. The sentiment is pieced together using Phrase Play #9 and Two Feet Deep from PTI.
My last card uses a printable post card image found on etsy. I thought the colors went perfectly with the challenge colors and it has a vintage look as well, so I couldn't resist making just one more card!
I sprayed the white panel with some white shimmer spray but it's hard to see in the picture. It glimmers and shines in real life.
I added a small poinsettia from Spellbinders, which I inked with Tattered Rose Distress Ink and sprayed with more shimmer mist. It sits on top if a mini Delicate Doily from MFT. The sentiment is from Painted Poinsettias from PTI. The card was made using last weeks Sweet Sunday Sketch, which I never got posted to the linky.
So that's it for my cards today as guest designer for Color Throwdown. I hope you'll join in on the fun and make a card using their sweet colors.
I'm entering one or more cards into the following challenges:
