Color Throwdown 193


It's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge and I happen to be the hostess this week.  I got my inspiration for the colors from this sweet floral bird cage arrangement.

You might need some shades for this bright version!  I used the square lattice EF by SU to emboss the summer sun panel and the bird's wing.   The sunflowers were colored with Copics, fussy cut and popped with foam dots.

You don't have to use the exact colors, but we do hope you stay close to them.  Add your creation to the Inlinkz tool at the bottom of the CTD post and use keyword CTD193 when you upload to a public gallery.  I look forward to seeing what you create!  Check out the inspiration from the design team and our talented guest designer for May - Kittie Caracciolo - by visiting the Color Throwdown blog!
