Well we're halfway through the week already! And as usual I'm late with my cards (but not as late as I sometimes am......) for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge:
You can head on over to the CTD blog HERE <-----click! to see what the rest of the team created with these colors - and play along if you can!
Here's what I made:
I pulled out my much-loved Mama Elephant Botanic Hello stamp set - I reach for this one alllllll the time it seems!
I couldn't just make one card as I was curios to see how it would look with silver embossing vs white embossing the image - so of course I did both!
On card number 1 I heat embossed the image with Nuvo's Classic Silver embossing powder.
For my second card I used my Hero Arts white embossing powder.
For both cards I watercolored the image with a mix of Distress Inks and my Gansai Tambi Pearl Colors watercolors and my FineTec Pearlescent Colors palette.
I finished off the insides of both cards using the Mama Elephant Hello Friend Wishes set and that was it!
To see how these cards came together check out my video below:

I get asked a lot about where to purchase the supplies I use in my videos and blog posts. I list all the supplies I use at the end of my posts (below) or in the description box directly below my video on YouTube. If the product images have sets of letters below the image it means there's more than one place it can be purchased. SSS = Simon Says Stamp, AZ = Amazon, MFT = My Favourite Things, SnS = Scrap N Stamp (Canada) etc. Compensated affiliate links used when possible at no extra cost to you. Affiliate linking is what keeps my blog and YouTube channel up and running and enables me to work from home with my kids! I appreciate your support more than words can say!
I occasionally receive product for free from stores/manufacturer with no obligation on my part to use/review - I only use and share what I personally love. Everything else I purchase myself!
