Color Throwdown 735-Slam Dunk

It's time for another Color Throwdown! Susie is our hostess this week with a fun mix of colors--blue, brown, and rust. We're also excited to welcome a new team member this week. The amazing Kelly Schirmer will be joining the CTD team starting with today's challenge. We can't wait to see what she creates for the team!

Slam Dunk card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn
Since it's March Madness season, I went with a basketball themed design using this trio of colors. My layout is from the current challenge at Try Stampin' on Tuesday. I used Lawn Fawn's All-Star set for my card, stamping the basketball net and basketball on white cardstock and coloring the images with Copic markers. The colored images were adhered to a white panel using foam tape for dimension. For interest, I used the smallest die in LF's Stitched Trails die set to create a "path" for my basketball. To ground the images, I used a thin pen to draw lines on the bottom of the panel and colored them with kraft colored markers to create a hardwood-ish floor. The edges of the panel were rounded with a corner rounder before I adhered it to a slightly larger brown cardstock panel with rounded edges, too. The "hope your day is a slam dunk" sentiment was heat embossed at the bottom of the panel in white ink. I added a trio of gold star brads in different sizes on the left side of the panel before adhering it to the bold navy 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 CTD735.  If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd735 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.
