Color Throwdown 174

It's Wednesday and with that comes another Color Throwdown Challenge! This week, Broni has some fabulous colors for us along with a terrific watercolor picture to inspire us! Here's the card I created...perfect for inking up some new Our Daily Bread Designs stamps that have a grunge look to them! I stamped the separate cross image in Soft Suede ink, then added highlights using a Gold Spica pen and a Sakura Gelly Roll "Clear Star" pen and popped it up with foam dots. The fancy vintage brad is by SU.

As always, if you don't have the exact colors just use the closest you have and be sure to direct link your card to the linky tool at the bottom of the CTD post. Also, please link the Color Throwdown in your blog post.
