Color Throwdown 605-Rainbow Hello

It's time for another Color Throwdown!  Jodi is our hostess this week with a fun mix of colors--red, coral, blue, and white. 

Rainbow Hello card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Taylored Expressions
I paired the colors with the current sketch from Sunday Stamps.  My focal panel features a non-traditional rainbow created with the Make a Rainbow stencil from Taylored Expressions.  After stenciling the rainbow, I added a shimmery white stitched cloud die cut to the right side. The sentiment was stamped in black and heat embossed.  The stenciled panel was matted on red cardstock, then adhered to a dark blue panel over a wide coral cardstock strip and a dotted red whimsical panel.  For a touch of sparkle, I added a trio of silver sequin "raindrops" beneath the cloud. The finished panel was adhered to a coral 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 CTD605If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd605 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 Jenny Martin.
