It's time for this weeks challenge on The Color Throwdown blog:
I LOVE this color combo - and of course the inspiration pic screams Valentine to me so I couldn't stop myself from making another one for the series:
I used Distress Reinkers to create the background - I wanted INTENSE color and reinkers definitely helped achieve that LOL! I used Spun Sugar, Seedless Preserves and Picked Raspberry.
I finally got a chance to use the SSS Love Bouquet Die on a card - and used a spray adhesive for the first time too. I will admit I'm not the biggest fan of spray adhesives (hence why I've never used them 'till now) b/c of the smell but for intricate die cuts like this it makes it SO much quicker and easier to get them adhered!!
I finished off the inside and mentioned in the video how the glitter die cut heart was an afterthought. When I was cleaning up my desk after making the card the heart was sitting here and I didn't want to toss it (well I would have tossed it in my gold glitter cardstock scrap folder - not in the garbage!) so instead I pried up part of the love die cut and adhered it underneath it.
To see how this card came together check out my video below:
