Color Throwdown 488-Dropping You a Lime

Dropping You a Lime card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Concord & 9th
It's time for another Color Throwdown!  Lynn is our hostess this week with this fresh color combination--yellow, green, aqua, and white.  I paired the colors with the current sketch at CAS(e) this Sketch for this punny fruit themed design.

I created a pair of limes using Concord & 9th's Orange You Sweet dies.  The leaves were made with the creative use of a circle punch to cut ovals from a larger circle.  I arranged the limes on a lemon yellow card base with an angled panel of grid patterned aqua paper along the bottom.  The "dropping you a lime" sentiment from the coordinating Orange You Sweet stamp set was stamped above the limes in green pigment ink.  I probably should have stamped the words a little lower on the cardfront so they were closer to the limes ...  I arranged a trio of white matte enamel dots around the limes to complete 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 CTD488.  If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd488 and #colorthrowdown.  You can find us on Instagram (and on Facebuook!) with the username colorthrowdown. 

Before you get started, here’s some inspiration from the talented Color Throwdown team, our April guestie Hannelie Bester, and this week's Guest Star Stamper Lynda Pleckan.
