For this weeks Colour Throwdown Challenge we’ve been asked to create a card using the colours – Yellow, Peach, Green and White. Also I might add that neutral colours are also allowed, hence the black in my card for this week.
This is a Slimline Card which is my current favourite style of card at the moment. I cut a piece of black card stock to 7″ x 8 1/2″ and scored it on the 7″ side to 3 1/2″. I then die cut a piece of Nina Solar White 120gsm cardstock using a slimline scalloped edge die from my stash. I then blended Distress Oxides Dried Marigold and Mustard Seed and faded the mustard seed out to white. I then sprinkled some water onto the card to pull out some colour and get an oxidised effect. Next I die cut from black cardstock some Cherry Blossoms using Kaisercrafts Cherry Blossom Die. I also die cut three small butterflies from white cardstock, added some Nuvo Glitter Gloss Aqua Shimmer in Silver and adhered them all to the distress oxide card front. I then cut and coloured the “Just for You” using another die from my stash and blended Distress Oxides Shabby Shutters and Mowed Lawn to get an ombre effect for my sentiment. I then glued all the pieces onto the card front and stuck the card front to the card base using double sided tape. I adhered some yellow, orange and green diamantes and some Ranger Liquid Pearls in White Opal to the centre of some of the black cherry blossom flowers.
