Color Throwdown 435-Don't Whirry

It's time for another Color Throwdown!  Lisa is our hostess this week and she's brought us a yummy color mix--light yellow, green, and blue.

Don't Whirry card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Lawn FawnI was inspired by the treats in Lisa's photo and whipped up a sweet card using images from Lawn Fawn's So Smooth stamp set. I colored the blender, banana, and berries using the challenge colors, then cut out the colored images with the matching dies.  The blender's buttons were coated with Daffodil irRESISTible Pico Embellisher for a glossy, raised look.  The pieces were arranged on a dark gray "countertop," using foam tape for dimension. I stamped the set's "don't whirry, be happy" sentiment next to the blender.  The set's clear stamps made it easy to split the single line of text into two.

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 CTD436. If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd436 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, Lisa Lara, and this week's guest star stamper, Cheryl McAskill.
