Color Throwdown 398-I Love Everthing You Dew

It's time for another Color Throwdown!  Lynn is our hostess this week and she's chosen a yummy color combination--raspberry red, hot pink, lime green, and yellow.  I paired the colors with the My Favorite Things Camp Create watercolor challenge for my design.

I Love Everthing You Dew card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from My Favorite Things
I created a watercolor panel as a background for my card by wetting watercolor paper and washing wide stripes of red, pink, and yellow paints across the panel.  A few green splatters from my paintbrush added a fun pop of contrasting color.  While I waited for the background to dry, I painted a scrap lime green.  I used this scrap to cut the soda bottle for my focal image. 

I stamped the "I love everything you dew" sentiment on one end of a silver strip and adhered that to the watercolored panel, then arranged the die cut bottle and a pair of hearts at the opposite end.  To bring in a bit more green, I added a trio of enamel dots around the bottle, then layered the panel on to a green card base.  It doesn't look too green in the photo, but it really is a lime green color!

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 CTD398. If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd398 and #colorthrowdown. You can find us on Instagram (and on Facebook!) with the username colorthrowdown.
