Color Throwdown #511


Hello everyone! Amy Rysavy here as your host for week's Color Throwdown challenge! Even though everything is turning to fall themes and fall colors I couldn't resist one more floral image and more summer colors! The colours for this week are to use pink, peach, berry red and greenRemember we just use generic colors (so any brand/type/whatever you have will work) and you can always feel free to add in neutrals (white/black/etc) to make your creation pop!

If you upload your creation to a public gallery, please use the keyword CTD511, and please use #CTD511 and #colorthrowdown on social media so we can find your gorgeous creations!  When linking up your creation using the linky tool below, please be sure to link your specific post, not a general link to your blog.  All of the "rules" are in the right sidebar, and you can always check there to be sure!

One last detail to remember, no digital designs.  Only digital images that are printed off and colored will be allowed.  Totally digital designs will be removed from the link up.

Here's some fabulous inspiration from the rest of the CTD team to get y'all started!

Here is my card for this week's Color Throwdown challenge using colors Orange, Blue and Red. I handpainted a goldfish using my favorite #kuretakegansaitambi watercolors, stamped a sentiment with #memento Danube Blue ink then clear heat embossed it. Next,  I added some watercolor splashes for additional interest. Trimmed the panel and mounted it on fun foam. As for the card base, I have used washi tape to create a striped border on the left, then mounted the finished panel on top. #ctd509 #colorthrowdown #handmadecards #handmadecard  #greetingcarddesign #papercrafts #greetingcards #crafting #cardmaking #papercraft #cardcraft #cardsforfriends #greetingcard #handmadeisbetter #papercraft #papercrafts #happymail #cardinspiration #cardmakinghobby #diycards #makingcards #cardmaker #cardmakers #cardsofinstagram #cardmakersofinstagram #makesomethingeveryday #goldfish #watercolorcard #watercolorcards
