It's Wednesday, and that means a new Color Throwdown Challenge! Wow, we were all impressed by the samples you made for the first challenge!! What an awesome bunch of creations in a variety of images and styles! This week Tammy Hershberger has thrown down this color combo:
This definitely IS a challenge! As I worked with my card, the color combination grew on me! I really like it! So here is my creation:
I broke into some of the yummy DP I bought on my shopping trip to Lancaster, and used a couple of retired SU images for my focal point. The sunflowers were painted with Barely Banana and Pumpkin Pie ink, and the whole image was overstamped with Sanded in Barely Banana, and Linen with Sahara Sand to give it a shabby, grungy feel. I also distressed the edges with my SU tool. I wish you could feel the suede ribbon, a RAK from Tammy (thanks again!), it just adds so much to the textures in the card; I finished it with an old button from my stash.
So lets see what you come up with! Post your take on this color challenge in the comments screen on the Color Throwdown blog and link it to your blog if you have one. And if you don't have these colors, feel free to substitute something close! If you'd like to link your creation at SCS, use "CTD2" in your posting!
