Hi guys. I am lucky enough to have been randomly chosen featured stamper for a recent Color Throwdown Challenge, and so once again I am Guest Star Stamper for the new challenge.
Here are the colours for this week:
And here is my interpretation of those colours:
I started by ink blending two shades of blue Distress Oxides onto a piece of Bristol Smooth card stock. This card is a new purchase for me, and I can certainly see why this is a favourite for ink blending – I am sure I will use this again and again.
Once blended, I die cut the Forest Backdrop in Concord & 9th ‘Dove’ card stock, as well as die cutting all the other elements in that same colour – with some white for the house roof, the underneath of the trees and the moon.
I stuck down the backdrop, then added all the elements, with either foam squares or directly with glue, and then added some glitter oen to all the white areas.
I also added some of the stars in grey and white for the sky – adding the glitter pen to them all.
The moon is actually two die cuts placed together to create a shadow effect. I did contemplate shading the die cuts with a Copic marker, but I struggle with that – unlike Nichol Spohr – but I will keep practising – just not with this card….
I enjoyed the challenge of using these colours to create a card, and I hope you can join the team this time round. xx
