Thank You! {CTD369}

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week, Tammy has challenged us to use rusty orange, warm burgundy and pear-like green!  What a gorgeous color combo!


I recently bought a set of Earth Tones Color Burst Watercolor Powders (you can get these now @ MFT) and I thought this color combo was perfect to try them out!  They are SO.MUCH.FUN.  I started with a panel of Ranger Watercolor Paper cut with Blueprints 13 Die-namics, and I tapped out a bit of Burnt Orange and Merlot powders.  I then spritzed the card stock with a Mini Mister of water and voila, a gorgeous background!  I used my heat embossing tool to dry the panel, since I have absolutely NO patience to wait for anything to dry (grin).

I cut out a trio of leaves using the Wild Greenery Die-namics from Olive Card Stock, Factory Green Card Stock and Fuse Green Card Stock.  I arranged the trio of leaves onto the card and then added a loose circle of gold thread.  The sentiment, “THANK YOU” was cut using the Label Tape Die-namics and stamped using Label Maker Sentiments with Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.
