Color Throwdown 603-Celebrate

It's time for another Color Throwdown!  Broni is our hostess this week with a vibrant mix of colors--yellow, orange, and green. I paired the colors with the current sketch from CAS(e) this Sketch and stamps from Reverse Confetti.

Celebrate card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Reverse Confetti
My focal image is the cat with a balloon bouquet from the Party Pals stamp set.  I colored the image with Copic markers, using a neutral gray for the cat and the challenge colors for the balloons. The colored image was cut out with my Scan 'n Cut machine then adhered to a white panel with strips of orange and green cardstock along the left side.  After matting the panel on green cardstock, I adhered it to a yellow striped patterned paper panel.  The set's "celebrate" sentiment was stamped in orange ink on a white cardstock trim. I trimmed it closely before matting it on green cardstock and using foam tape to adhere it to the top left side of the panel, overlapping the top of the image panel.  The finished panel was adhered to a green card base.  I was going to use yellow to match the striped panel, but the contrast of the green really pulled everything together.

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 CTD603If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd603 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 this week's Guest Star Stamper Saskia Pullen.
