Color Throwdown 494-The Coolest Birthday Ever

It's time for another Color Throwdown!  Amy Rohl is our hostess this week with a classic color combination--red, white, and blue.

The Coolest Birthday Ever card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Pattern HappyRed, white, and blue are the colors of the bomb pop, a classic frozen summer treat, so I ran with that for my design.  The layout is based on the current sketch at CAS(e) this Sketch.  I stamped one of the smaller popsicle images from Pattern Happy's Coolest Ever set along the bottom of a white panel, then colored the images with Copic markers.  I stamped a single larger popsicle image and colored it to match, then cut it out with the matching die.  It was adhered to the stamped panel using foam tape.  It doesn't show in the photo, but I gave it a frosty look by using a clear glitter brush pen over the colored image.  The set's birthday sentiment was stamped on the left side of the panel using a blue pigment ink.  The finished panel was adhered to a coordinating blue card base.

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 CTD494.  If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd494 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 May guestie Rachel Avarado, and this week's Guest Star Stamper, Marcia Hill.
