Color Throwdown 378-I'll Be Here for You

It's time for another Color Throwdown!  Lynn is our hostess this week with a fun, vibrant color combination--hot pink, lime green, yellow, and light blue.

I'll Be Here card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Mama Elephant
I used another image (or two) colored for the current Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge to put together my card.  The raincoat and rain boot clad kiddo and the umbrella image from Mama Elephant's Chance of Rain stamp set were colored up with Copic markers to match the challenge colors, then cut out by hand.  I made a simple background for the images on a light blue card base with green "grass" along the bottom and white clouds across the top.  Once the scenery was in place, I positioned the images on the cardfront, using foam tape for dimension.  The "I'll be here if you need a hug" sentiment from ME's In My Heart stamp set was stamped to the right of the images in black ink.  I added a trio of white sequin raindrops around the images 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 CTD478.  If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd478 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 and our January guestie Debra James, and this week's Guest Star Stamper, Tara Godfrey.
