Color Throwdown 449-Bear Hugs

It's time for another Color Throwdown! Vickie is our hostess this week with an earthy color combination--orange, brown, and green.  I paired the colors with the current sketch at CAS(e) this Sketch for my sweet design.

Bear Hugs card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Mama Elephant
I used the layout to create a simple scene featuring stamps from Mama Elephant's Bear Hugs stamp set.  I colored up the bear duo with Copic markers, then used the matching die to cut out the colored image.  To make the background, I blended several orange and yellow distress inks on to a cardstock panel, then added a section of green cardstock grass, die cut with ME's Landscape Trio dies, along the bottom of the inked panel.  The bears were added to the panel using foam tape.  I stamped one of the set's sentiments on to the panel using black ink.  After matting the scene on orange cardstock, I adhered it to kraft cardstock to finish 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 CTD449.  If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd449 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 June guestie Audrey Tokach, and this week's Guest Star Stamper, Doni High.
