Color Throwdown #504 - Black, Copper, & White

Hello friends.  This week's challenge at Color Throwdown stumped me for about 10 minutes...


I LOVE copper, but this one had me thinking I might bow out...and then it hit me!  Cattail Copper Brown Magicals!  If you've followed me for the past year, you'll know I am absolutely in LOVE with Lindy's Magical Powders, and once I remembered this copper color, the rest of the card came together very easily!


After my panel with the Magicals dried, I die cut my butterfly (Memory Box - Vivienne Butterfly) from the panel and a 2nd one from a scrap of black, and then inlaid the pieces together.  I used a Tim Holtz die to cut a stencil and then used Black Soot DOX ink to stencil my background.  I used a stitched rectangle die to cut my stenciled background and attached to a white card base.


Here's a close up that shows the shimmer and shine of the copper magicals a little better...IRL it's phenomenal!!  I finished off my card with some SU! Copper Cord (retired) and a few iridescent sequins and a sentiment from PTI's Winter Woods.

This color combination is really SO elegant, and there are some absolutely BEAUTIFUL cards from the DT to inspire you!  You can check it all out right HERE.

I would also like to add this card to the current Double D challenge which I love the title of:  Don't Bug Me.


I think my black and copper butterfly fits in beautifully with this challenge also!  Check out all the BEAUTIFUL cards from the DT as inspiration, and then play along with this FUN challenge too right HERE.

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