Colour Throwdown | #582


I have been stalking the Colour Throwdown blog this year but have yet managed to get something made and shared by the deadline...  I think I'm going to make it this week, fingers crossed!


Here is the swatch that inspired the colours.


I made three cards using the same stamp which is a few years old and from Concord & 9th.  I embossed with white powder on to three different types of kraft.


The first card was colour with Polychromos pencils, mounted on to white and embellished with a few sequins.


The second is roughly painted with a couple of mists mixed with mica powders.  The mica is making the colours show on the kraft, without it the sink into the kraft card and barely show up.


I was very loose with the painting and added a few splatters too.


I added a gold high five sticker.  I think I need a stamp that says high five - are there any out there you can let me know of?


 And finally a piece painted with the mica/mist mix.  This one was more deliberately painted.  This kraft cardstock was much thinner and warped A LOT so I used a sheet of double sided adhesive to mount it to some cardboard before mounting that on to the card.


 Again finished with a few sequins and some Heidi Swapp glitter alphas.


I recorded my process so hopefully the video will follow in a couple of days!

Thanks for stopping by!
