Color Throwdown 441-Have a Magical Day

It's time for another Color Throwdown!  Amy Rysavy is our hostess this week and she's sharing a soft, pastel-filled color combination--lavender, aqua, light pink, and white.

Have a Magical Day card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Taylored Expressions
The layout for my card is loosely based on the current sketch at CAS(e) this Sketch.  I started out with an aqua blue card base "sky," then added shimmery white die cut clouds and a fanciful dragon on top. My dragon is from the Taylored Expressions Magical Day stamp and die combo set.  I colored the image in soft pink and purple shades (probably not a traditional color scheme for a dragon!) using my Copic markers, then used the coordinating die to cut out the colored image.  I added it to the cardfront using foam tape.  The set's "have a magical day" sentiment was stamped to the left of the dragon.  A trio of aqua sequins scattered around the clouds and dragon completed the design.

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 CTD441.  If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd441 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, Maja Mihelj.
