Color Throwdown #175





Hi, everyone! It's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge and Danielle has given us a lovely romantic hammock photo to give us our color palette and also theme inspiration if we choose. Hearts and flowers are typically linked with romance, so I chose this new bleeding hearts image from ODBD to layer on the seed packet BG. I re-purposed this yummy ribbon that was given to me on a package from a friend...going to have to find out where she got this ribbon as I totally LOVE it! I colored with Copics (R21, R24, YG91, YG93, YG63, E0000).


Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the Color Throwdown challenge. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, hop on over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD175 so we can see your beauty all in one place. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week.
