Color Throwdown 667-I Couldn't Have Picked a Sweeter Friend

It's time for another Color Throwdown! It's my turn to be challenge hostess this week and I've selected a color palette inspired by this trendy textile earth-toned rainbow--orange, peach, pink, and red.

I Couldn't Have Picked a Sweeter Friend card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Reverse Confetti
I created a simple fall theme using the challenge colors and Reverse Confetti's Honey Bear stamp set. I colored up the bear, basket, and stack of apples with Copic markers and cut them out with the matching dies. The leafy treetop was stamped in orange ink on peach cardstock. It was filled in with the set's small apple image. For the background, I used a pink distress oxide and a cloud stencil to create the sky. After adding a kraft stitched hillside to the bottom of the stenciled panel, I added the image on top, using foam tape for dimension. The set's "I couldn't have picked a sweeter friend" sentiment was stamped in the bottom left corner of the panel in black ink using my MISTI. I framed the scene by placing it on a coordinating orange 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 CTD667.  If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd667 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.
