Color Throwdown 384-Floral Thank You

It's time for another Color Throwdown!  Barbara is our hostess this week and sharing a fun color combination--lavender, red, and green.  Isn't the purple bicycle in the photo fabulous?

Floral Thank You card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Right at Home
I went floral for my card for the second week in a row.  This time, instead of using die cuts, I used stamped florals in a similar modern style. The stamps are from Right at Home's Abstract Floral set--so fun to mix and match.  I started with a solid lavender base, then added the scribble layer in red pigment ink and the center in green pigment ink.  The little dots were added with more red ink after the solid green image set.  I cut out the flowers and leaves with my scissors, then arranged them on a white panel over a lavender-ish cardstock strip.  The "thank you" sentiment from the Script Greetings set, also from Right at Home, was stamped on the panel's open space in lavender ink.  I matted the panel on red cardstock, then adhered it to a lavender card base on an angle.

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 CTD384. If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd384 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 March guestie Leslie Miller, and this week's Guest Star Stamper, Lee Ann Barrett.
