Color Throwdown 428-Warm Hugs
It's time for another Color Throwdown! Lynn is our hostess this week with a yummy color combination--red, pink, chocolate, and white.
I definitely took some design cues from the photo Lynn used as color inspiration. My mug is from Concord &9th's Let's Chat set. I colored the outline with red Copic markers, then used brown and white pigment inks to fill in the liquid and fancy foam design inside. After carefully cutting it out, I used foam tape to adhere the mug to a pink polka dotted saucer. The saucer was adhered to a white cardstock panel. I die cut a pair of fishtail flag strips, one red and one pink, and wrapped the pieces with a length of brown twine. They were placed at the top of the white cardstock panel. I stamped the "warm hugs" sentiment on the pink strip, then layered the finished panel on to a matching pink card base.
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 CTD428. If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd428 and #colorthrowdown. You can find us on Instagram (and on Facebook!) with the username colorthrowdown.
