Color Throwdown 574-Sending You Lots and Lots of Love

It's time for another Color Throwdown!  We're back after our winter holiday break with colors chosen by our hostess, Amy Rohl--red, brown, and white. 

Sending You Lots and Lots of Love card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Reverse ConfettiI paired the colors with the current challenge from the Paper Craft Crew for a sweet love themed design.  I started out by using a dotted stencil and Barn Door distress ink to create a background panel.  The background was topped with a pair of layered oval die cuts, one red and one white.  I stamped the "sending you lots and lots of love" sentiment from Reverse Confetti's Crazy About You set on the white oval in brown ink.  To set the ovals off from the background, I tucked a chocolate brown banner strip cut with RC's Tag Me die underneath the left side of the layered ovals.  I accented the panel with a red die cut heart placed over a twirled length of gold thread.  A trio of red sequins arranged around the heart 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 CTD574If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd574 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 January Guestie Amy Tsuruta.
