Hello! {CTD352}

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown, and this week, Tammy has challenged us to use lime-y green, aqua green, light gray and dark gray!  I LOVE this color combo!


For the main panel, I cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using Blueprints 1 Die-namics.  I ALWAYS use Smooth White Card Stock when stamping a solid image or using a stencil, the ink just lays so beautifully on this paper.  I taped my panel down and laid the Abstract Stencil on top.  I sponged on Summer Splash Premium Dye Ink and Sour Apple Premium Dye Ink.  I love these colors together!  When I was done laying down the ink, I removed the stencil and added a mat of Sweet Tooth Card Stock cut with Blueprints 2 Die-namics.

I cut a panel of Steel Grey Card Stock using the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics, and then cut a panel of Grout Gray Card Stock using Blueprints 8 Die-namics.  I layered the two panels together and added them to the card.  I then cut “hello” using the Happy Hellos Die-namics from Silver Sparkle Card Stock.  I ran the die cut word through my Xyron Create-A-Sticker Machine (LOVE this machine) and then added it to the flag.  I finished off the card with two sequins and a rhinestone!
