Color Throwdown 475-Sending You Big Hugs

It's time for another Color Throwdown!  Jodi is our hostess today with a pretty mix of colors-navy, aqua, and pink.

Sending You Big Hugs card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from SugarPea Designs
I made aqua the dominant color on my creation.  I arranged a pair of fishtail flag strips at the top of the aqua card base. For the sentiment, I used the You die from SugarPea Designs to die cut the word "you" from both navy cardstock and craft foam.  I layered the two pieces for dimension, then adhered them to the card base.  To finish the sentiment, I stamped "sending" and "big hugs" above and beneath the die cut in Versamark ink, then heat embossed the words with pink embossing powder.  I adhered strips of pink and navy cardstock beneath the sentiment to draw attention to the text--and use up some scraps at the same time!

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 CTD475.  If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd475 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, Angie Cimbalo.
