Color Throwdown

 Hello's Color Throwdown Challenge time again!
 Lynn is our hostess and she found this gorgeous bird photo with colors that are some of my favorites!

I knew I wanted to play with my Dylusions ink sprays for the BG and used the Dylusions' hexagon stencil over Vintage Cream CS then sprayed Vibrant Turquoise and Melted Chocolate inks.  I then sponged Cool Caribbean ink in random sections.  A tiny tag (stamp set and punch by SU), some seam binding and a couple of die cut flowers (Chloe Stem die by Memory Box) finish it off.

Be sure and check out the other design team members' creations on the Color Throwdown blog for more inspiration or stop by their respective blogs...

Fantastic, Wanda. Love your multicolored background and how it really makes your die cut stand out. Love the idea of using your diecut as the focal image of this gorgeous card!
