Color Throwdown 482-Hello Friend

It's time for another Color Throwdown!  Barbara is our hostess this week with a pretty color combination--pink, kraft, and gray.  I combined the colors with the current challenge at CAS(e) this Sketch for this soft, feminine design.

Hello Friend card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from The Stamp MarketI built my design on a pale pink cardstock panel.  The large solid "hello" from the Hello Hello stamp set from The Stamp Market was stamped on the panel in gray pigment ink.  I used my MISTI so I could double stamp the image for a nice, solid look.  I cut the word "friend" from kraft cardstock and craft foam using the coordinating Scripty Hello dies.  After layering the two pieces (and managing to keep track of the teeny, tiny dot for the "i"), I adhered them to the panel, overlapping the "hello" just a tiny bit.  I accented the die cut word with a trio of pink sequins.  The finished panel was adhered to a cream card base.  The cream looks so pretty with these soft, muted colors!

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 CTD482.  If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd48 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 February guestie Claire Apostoloff, and this week's Guest Star Stamper, YoonYoung Kim.
