Color Throwdown 349-Let Your Dreams Soar

It's time for another Color Throwdown!  Jodi is our hostess this week and she's shared this fabulous color combination with us--white, kraft, turquoise, and orange.

Let Your Dreams Soar card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from The Cat's Pajamas
I combined the colors with the current sketch at CAS(e) this Sketch and stamps from The Cat's Pajamas.  I made a watercolored background with some distress inks that I pressed onto my craft sheet and misted with water.  While the background was drying, I colored the bear image from the I Are Fun set.  After it dried, I used foam tape to adhere the image to the upper left corner of the panel.  I stamped the "let your dreams soar" sentiment from the Hang in There Baby set next to the image in black pigment ink.  To bring in a bit more white, I arranged a trio of sequins around the bear image.  The finished panel was adhered to an orange 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 CTD349. If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd349 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 July guestie, Valentyna Komisarenko, and this week’s guest star stamper, Lee Erwee.
