Color Throwdown 348-Super Duper

It's time for another Color Throwdown!  Joan is our hostess this week and she's chosen a primary color scheme inspired by this nautical quilt--blue, yellow, and red.

Super Duper card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Mama ElephantSince I did a nautical card for last week's CTD, I went in a different direction and did a superhero themed card.  My superhero is from Mama Elephant's Tiny Heroes set.  I colored the hero with Copic markers, then cut out the image with the matching die. I used foam tape to adhere the hero to a blue card base over a "cloud" cut with one of ME's Landscape Trio dies.  The hero was backed with a twisted messy bundle of silver thread. 

To bring in more silver, I stamped the sentiment in silver ink, then heat embossed it with silver embossing powder. I accented the words with a trio of super sparkly silver sequins.

To play along, just create a paper crafted project using these colors as a starting point and add a direct link to your finished project using the linky tool found at the end of this week's CTD post. As always, if you don’t have exact color matches, something close works just fine. Just be sure that the challenge colors are the dominant ones in your project. And, if you upload your project to an online gallery, use the keyword CTD348. If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd348 and #colorthrowdown. You can find us on Instagram (and on Facebook!) with the username colorthrowdown. Before you get started, here’s some inspiration from the talented Color Throwdown team, our June guestie, Nancy Thomas, and this week’s guest star stamper, Karren.
