Color Throwdown 372-Sending Holiday Cheer

It's time for another Color Throwdown!  Barbara is our hostess this week and she's found a fun color combination for us to try--hot pink, aqua, silver, and kraft.

Sending Holiday Cheer card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from WPlus9
I used the colors for a simple wintery design.  I stamped and die cut a pair of mittens and a hat using WPlus9's Holiday Cheer stamp set and dies.  The die cut pieces were adhered to a silver zig zag stitched circle die cut using foam tape for dimension.  See that little bit of twine that connects the mitten pair?  That's my bit of kraft color for the challenge!

I adhered the circle to a white cardstock panel, trimming off the circle's side so it would be flush with the panel's edge.  The "sending holiday cheer" sentiment was stamped above the circle in my favorite silver ink--Delicata Silvery Shimmer.  I scattered a few silver sequins around the panel for more sparkle and shine, then adhered it to an aqua 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 CTD372. If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd372 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 December guestie Torico, and this week's Guest Star Stamper, Gerrina.
