I have a Color Throwdown Challenge card to share today - it's my last as the May Guest Designer and I can honestly say it was a blessing to be a part of this group. I enjoyed the color challenges and feel like this experience refreshed my color style a bit - so thank you Wanda and all the girls at CTD for the opportunity!!
|CTD #144 - You are the World|
To make this card I used the Acetate and Rolled Marbles techniques, but I prepared my One Layered card base by placing a sticky note in the center. then I used Going Gray and Daffodil Delight markers to color a sheet of Acetate, spritzed it with a bit of water, and placed it onto the card front. Then I dropped Tempting Turquoise, Pink Passion, Daffodil Delight and Silver re-inkers into a flat stamp box with four Marbles and rolled them around on top of the card front.
|You are the World Front View|
Normally this rolled marble technique is done on glossy cardstock and I can see why - this heavy cardstock doesn't absorb the color quite as well as the glossy paper does. So I took the acetate/marble technique to the next level by 'mashing' the acetate into the container lid (to transfer the pretty colors onto the acetate), then placed the acetate over the cardstock - this gives even more texture to the design!!

To finish it off I added three Prima Flowers, rolled and distressed them a bit as well, placed them over a bed of Silver Twine and punched leaves. I love the random artsy/painted look - it's so different for me!! Above is a close-up of the sentiment - one of my favorites :)!!
