Color Throwdown 376-Hogs and Kisses

It's time for another Color Throwdown!  Jodi is our hostess this week and she's chosen this sweets inspired color combination--aqua, pink, kraft, and white.

Hogs and Kisses card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Avery Elle
I used the colors to put together a cute Valentine's Day card with stamps and dies from Avery Elle.  I couldn't resist the animal puns in the Hogs and Kisses set!  For this card, I colored up the pig image.  If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen a little peek of the colored image over the weekend . . .  After stamping the "hogs and kisses" sentiment on the heart in the pig's hands, I used foam tape to adhere the image to an aqua cardstock panel.  To add interest, I looped a bit of twine behind the image.  And, to go with the love theme, I added a trio of small die cut shimmery white hearts above the piggie. The finished panel was adhered to a pink mat, then set on a white 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 CTD376. If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd376 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 January guestie Amy Rysavy, and this week's Guest Star Stamper, Channin Pelletier.
