Color Throwdown 489-Thank You Apple

It's time for Color Throwdown Challenge. Check out our new colors. 

Good Morning!  We have a gorgeous color combo from Vickie for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge #489!  I am in the mood for spring and while I love strawberries, these colors called for apples and a sweet card for a teacher. Well, that's what I had in mind today. 

I hope you'll like creating with the colors redgreen, and white for this week's challenge and I hope they inspire you to create something special. We are using generic colors, so as long as you use the color values shown, you are all set! As always, please feel free to incorporate any neutrals that you need in your design as well!

If you upload to a public gallery, please use the keyword CTD489, and please use #ctd489 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites. Also, when linking up your card using the linky tool at the bottom of the post, please link to your specific post, not a generic link to your blog. All of the "rules" are in the right sidebar, please check them out if you are in doubt! One last detail to remember, no digital designs - only digital images that are printed off and colored will be allowed. Totally digital designs will be removed from the link up.

I pulled out the Kindness Cards and a quad of RC inks to to create an ombre effect for the sentiment. I first cut some Polar White card stock with the Rounded Rectangle from Kindness Cards Confetti Cuts. I used my Misti to line up the sentiment as I stamped it each time in the following inks: Piggy Bank, Flamingo, Magenta, and Salsa. I finished the sentiment with addition of the "for your kindness" in Midnight ink at the bottom. 

I then inked up the way cool apples from All Apples. It's still one of my favorite stamp sets. I used Grass, Avocado, and Lime Green inks for the apple and leaves and then cut them out with the coordinating All Apples Confetti Cuts

Check out the beautiful creations from the team this week! They are sure to inspire you, they always inspire me!! Have fun creating, we cannot wait to see what you come up with using these colors!!
