Color Throwdown 504-Grateful for You

It's time for another Color Throwdown!   Amy Rohl is our hostess this week with a great mix of neutrals and metallic--black, white and copper (or rust, if you don't have copper available).

Grateful for You card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Concord & 9th
I used the colors to create a thank you card with a fall feel.  My focal image is a pretty copper leaf made by stamping the leaf image from Concord & 9th's Lace Leaf stamp set on copper cardstock, then heat embossing the image with copper embossing powder. The tone on tone look is so pretty!  I die cut the embossed image with the coordinating die from the Grateful Leaf die set, then adhered it to a white panel.  For the sentiment, I die cut the word "grateful" twice, once from black cardstock and once from craft foam.  I layered the pieces, then adhered them to the panel, overlapping the leaf image.  The "for you" sentiment was stamped just beneath the die cut word in black ink.  After matting the panel on copper cardstock, I adhered it to a black card base.  A trio of clear jewels arranged around the sentiment completed 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 CTD504.  If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd504 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 August Guestie Joy Taylor, and this week's Guest Star Stamper, Birgit Edblom.
