Color Throwdown 501-What's Brewing?

It's time for another Color Throwdown!  Amy Rysavy is our challenge hostess this week with a neutral combination with a pop of color--gray, yellow, kraft, and white. 

What's Brewing? card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Honey Bee StampsI paired the colors with the current challenge at Sunday Stamps.  I stamped a trio of to go cup images from the Coffee Break stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps on a white panel, positioning them as shown in the challenge layout, then coloring the images with Copic markers.  The stars on the sleeves on the cups were stamped with a pretty golden yellow ink.  I adhered a golden yellow cardstock strip to the bottom third of the stamped panel.  After wrapping some gray twine around the panel and securing it with a bow, I stamped the "what's brewing?" sentiment from the Perfect Blend set just beneath the twine.  The finished panel was adhered to a gray 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 CTD501.  If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd501 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 July Guestie Kathy Schweinfurth, and this week's Guest Star Stamper, Svetlana Kalajda.
