Color Throwdown 181



Hello everyone! It's Wednesday, so that means it's Color Throwdown time! This week's challenge is being hosted by Lynn Put and I was thrilled to see some green on board!  The colors were just perfect to get out my trusty Copics and color up this rose image.

Here's what I used:
STAMPS: Lenten Rose (Flourishes), Calla Lilies (Flourishes) - sentiment
PAPER: Blush Blossom, Ruby Red, Certainly Celery, X-Press It Blending Card
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black
ACCESSORIES: Leafy Flourish Dienamics by Flourishes, Diamond Stickles, Copics, Oval and oval scallop punches by SU.

We'd love to see what you create with these colors!  Remember, if you don't have the exact colors,  please feel free to substitute colors that are close! Make a card or paper crafted project and post it to your blog. Then use the direct link from your blog and link it to the Color Throwdown blog using the linky tool. If you post to an online gallery please add CTD181 to the keywords.  For more inspiration, you'll want to check out the other design team members' creations: Barbara Anders, Broni Holcombe, Danielle Kennedy, Joan Ervin, Keva Brown, Kerri Michaud, Kristin Eberline, Lori Tecler, Lynn Put, Tammy Hershberger, and our fabulous guest designer - Jenny Peterson!
