Color Throw Down




Tangerine Tango, So Saffron & Basic Gray are the colors in this week's Color Throw Down Challenge. I used Roxie's layout from the Sketch Challenge on SCS for this card made with one of my fave SU sets. I flipped the sketch for starters...stamped the image with Old Olive ink then used a Tombow marker to color the flowers, huffed & puffed...no, I didn't blow the house in but I did stamp it on some vanilla CS - lol! The butterfly is a sticker from K&Co. Now that I've unwound from a fairly easy night at work, it's time to say good night!

STAMPS: Thoughts & Prayers (SU)
PAPER: Walk in the Park DP (SU), So Saffron, Tangerine Tango, Basic Gray, Vintage Vanilla
INK: Old Olive, Tangerine Tango
ACCESSORIES: Rhinestone stickers, MS Floral Band border punch, Satin ribbon (SU)

Gorgeous, Wanda! (I love the name of your blog, BTW!) You did a great job with this sketch, which I thought was intimidating! Perfect for the little butterfly, and that ribbon and punched edging is just beautiful! Thanks for using the CTD colors!
