Hello everyone and welcome to another Card Making post! Today I wanted to share another color Throwdown , this time with a video!
For this week's challenge the colors were Red, Green and White. With those colors we think Christmas, but truly this color combo can be used all year round.
I wanted to keep the card simple, with the focus completely on the colors. I used two sheets of my Canson Mixed Media Paper, and blended some Distress Oxide Candied Apple and Distress Ink Mowed Lawn, one color on each sheet. To add some texture, I activated the distress effect, by splattering some water over the inks, and then gently dabbing them with a power towel to pick up any excess water.
Once they were dry, I was able to cut some Stitched Heart Dies in various sizes to use for my card cover. With a simple Love sentiment on black cardstock, this card is simple, yet perfect for any occassion.
