Hi gang! Nothing like creating a card with what you thought was this week's color scheme only to realize you have the wrong colors when you start typing up a blog post. Yep. That's me. Back to creating I went!
All the details of how to play along in the Color Throwdown Challenge can be found HERE. And here is the beautiful colors of the week! #ctd505
I'm just happy I caught it BEFORE I finished my post. That's okay. I really did want to play more in my craft room.
Here's my completed card.
Nothing overly complicated here at all. I printed this lovely digital stamp from Gerda Steiner Designs. It is called "Have a Beary Sweet Day" and can be found HERE. I have loved her images for a long time. I own several of her digital stamps and a few of her photopolymer sets. If you haven't seen her work before you definitely need to check her out! #GSDDTCALL
Like I was saying, I printed the stamp out onto Bristol paper. I picked out three Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers that matched closest to the challenge colors. I would put on a little of the straight color and then spread it out with a water brush. For the bear I used Dark Gray and pale pink for the snout area. The sign is Pale Rose and the background is Persian Green. Once it was dry, I went over the sign with a Nuvo glitter gloss marker. I used a black marker and a ruler to trace around the background color to make it look more complete. That's it. Fairly quick and super simple. Hope you like it!
