Color Throwdown 165


Happy Wednesday! That means it's Color Throwdown challenge time and this week, that talented lil' inker, Laura Pryor, has a sunshiny combo for us: Pool Party, Peach Parfait, Daffodil Delight & Old Olive!
I consider this to be a CAS card with very little frills. I made my own DP by first stamping the Stipple Plaid BG in Daffodil Delight, then in Pool Party. The card base is 2 Labels Eight Nesties shapes adhered together using Scor-tape. I fussy cut the main image and popped it with foam squares to give it dimension.

Here's what I used:
STAMPS: Inkadinkado; Stipple BG by SU, Happy Hello (sentiment) by Verve
PAPER: Daffodil Delight, Neenah Solar Crest White
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black
ACCESSORIES: Labels Eight Nesties, Copics (BG11, YG03, YR65, YR68), Enamel Accents (black) used for center of poppy, Pool Party ribbon by SU, Green gemstones by Hero Arts.

Stop on over and see what the other members of the design team created! You can check it all out HERE!
