Color Throwdown 344-Triangular Thank You

It's time for another Color Throwdown!  Amy Rohl is our hostess this week with a pretty floral inspired combination--green, gray, and white. I paired the colors with the current sketch at CAS(e) this Sketch to create a simple thank you design.

Triangular Thank You card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Altenew
I arranged a trio of triangle images from Altenew's Sohcahtoa stamp set on my clear block and stamped them in green pigment ink on a white panel.  The set's "thank you" sentiment was stamped in white pigment ink on a narrow gray cardstock strip, then heat embossed with white to pop.  After trimming the sentiment strip, I placed it on the panel using foam tape.  A pair of green enamel dots added some contrasting, soft  edges to the design.  After edging the left side of the stamped panel with a narrow strip of gray cardstock, I adhered it to a coordinating green 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 CTD444.  If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd444 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 May guestie Amy Tsuruta, and this week's Guest Star Stamper, Katie Mowery.
