CDT 423...A good day to be awesome...


Happy Sunday to you.

I saw the great colours over at Color Throwdown this week and knew I had to play along..

I had a lot of fun making this card and the unusual colour combo really worked for me.

I decided I would put some Picked Raspberry distress ink onto my craft mat, spritz it and smoosh my watercolour paper into it, to create the hot pink background for my die-cut. I did this until I got the colour I wanted.

I used the Neat & Tangled Hexastar cover plate and boy is that hard to cut :) But It meant that I got some random triangles that didn't pop out and I actually really like it.

To enhance the hot pinkness I used a finger dauber and more of the ink around the edges.

I created the lime background using Lime Twist distress ink and a blending tool.

I used foam tape to pop the cover plate up and then die-cut the awesome from the Neat & Tangled set of the same name in red paper to fit the colour scheme. The rest of the sentiment is from the stamp set that goes with this die and I stamped that on a scrap of lime paper.

Finishing touch was to add a few lime and red sequins around.

It's bright and a bit in your face, but I love it, great make for a Saturday morning :)



  1. Gorgeous (awesome) card, Claire. I love it. Thanks for your comment, too. Have a great week.

  2. I love this background die and the sentiment combo. The colors are punchy and bright, we all need that this time of year. I am laughing at the use of the bits that didn't pop out. Genius. x

  3. Fabulous take on the colour challenge!

  4. What a cool patterned background! Thanks so much for playing along in the Color Throwdown challenge with us this week! Merry Christmas!
