Deco with Color Throwdown

Hello Everyone,

Today I am the guest designer for the Color Throwdown! So excited to be here and more importantly I am excited about the color challenge this week. But first, here is my card for today, enjoy!

I saw this color palette and immediately thought of Art Deco. The geometric design, use of nature, and later, bright vibrant color, is what inspired me to create this card. The gold and aqua colors are what really got me thinking along this line. I think I managed to stay true to the Art Deco style.

Color Throwdown
Challenge #598

Above: The moth was heat embossed using Princess Gold powder by Ranger. I colored the moth using a mixture of Mexpy and Copic alcohol markers. I added a bit of dimension by fussy cutting the moth and adding foam tape for lift. I really like the way the shadows land on the white CS. Left/Below: The panel behind the moth shows the sentiment and banner. The banner was colored in the same colors as the moth and the sentiment was stamped in dark brown. Right/Bottom: Now this is where it gets interesting. The aqua CS was done by dry debossing the pattern in the cardstock. I then evenly added Versamark to the raised part of the embossing plate pattern, trying to make sure to get ink only on the raised pattern. I then used the same technique as before and ran it through again. I added the Princess Gold powder and heat set. I really enjoy how it turned out.
