Color Throwdown #171


I'm excited to be able to host for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge! Many of us are still in the Christmas creating mode, so I thought I'd go with some vintage, earthy colors that could work for Christmas, if needed, or for a variety of other themes as well.I was inspired by the papers in the Lost & Found Christmas pad my My Mind's Eye and used 3 different papers to create this package tag/ornament. I sponged a little Versamark ink on the edges of the poinsettia and added Queen's Gold EP by Ranger. I added 3 small glitter adhesive dots to the flower center. So...what are you waiting for? Take a break from all the holiday bustle and join us! Need some inspiration? Check out the samples of our Color Throwdown team...including the ultra talented guest designer, Lydia Fiedler!
