You Made My Day! {CTD452}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week, Bar has challenged us to use green, yellow, red and turquoise! LOVE this combo!


I loved the technique that Jennifer McGuire recently shared using the Distress Oxide Inks and stamping with water, so I tried my hand at this fun technique for my card this week! I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock, cut with Blueprints 24 Die-namics, and I sponged on Fired Brick Distress Oxide Ink, Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink and the new Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink. It is AMAZING how beautifully these colors blend!

I then stamped the panel using the Abstract Background using water, and let it sit there for a few minutes before removing the stamp and hitting the panel with my heat gun. LOVE this look!  used the new You Trio Die-namics to cut “you” from Smooth White Card Stock four times, and I layered them and added them to the card. I stamped “MADE MY DAY” from All About You onto a panel of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock using Versamark Ink, and then heat embossed it with White Detail Embossing Powder. I trimmed down the panel and added it to the card under the “you”. A trio of rhinestones finished off the card.
