Color Throwdown 732-Rain or Shine

It's time for another Color Throwdown! This week our colors are coral, yellow, blue, and navy.

Rain or Shine card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn
I paired the colors with the current sketch from The Paper Players for this simple square card. I used Lawn Fawn's classic Spring Showers die set to make a sky scene with a sun, clouds, and raindrops. The stitched elements on the dies add interest to the simple shapes as does the shimmery white paper I used for the clouds. The raindrops were cut out from a round blue cardstock panel. Matting the circle on a slightly larger navy circle provided contrast while filling in the negative space from the die cut drops. I adhered the circle to the center of a yellow panel, then used phrases from LF's Here for You Bear and Beary Rainy Days stamp sets to create the sentiment on coral strips placed at the bottom of the panel. The finished panel was adhered to a square navy blue 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 CTD732.  If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd732 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.
