Color Throwdown #487 and Double D Twine Challenge

Hello friends.  Playing along with 2 challenges today...Color Throwdown is looking for the colors Mint, Red, & Pink, and Double D is looking for TWINE on your cards.  And don't you just love it when you can make 2 challenges work together?!!  I LOVE the colors again this week for the Color Throwdown challenge, and I use twine on most of my cards these days...I think it's replacing the ribbon I used to add to ALL my cards!  :0)


Here's what I came up with using this week's colors and an outlining technique from Stephanie Gold:

 
I used Altenew's Beautiful Day stamp set to stamp the solid image of the flowers in Red and Pink, and the leaves in Mint Green.  Then using Stephanie's technique, I offset the outline image in black to give a more "artsy" feel to my card.  I added a little strip of DSP from MFT's Black & White Stripes 6 x 6 Paper Pack and a piece of black Baker's Twine (SU!) to finish off my card.


You can check out both of these challenges right HERE (Color Throwdown) and HERE (Double D - Twine).  LOT'S of beautiful inspiration from both teams!!  :0)


Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

  13. I love the artsy look of your card and you got two challenges out of it. Way to go. The striped border on the side really sets off the twine. Glad that you shared this with us at Double D Challenge Twine.
    Hope to see you again.
