Color Throwdown #222

It's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge and we've got a gorgeous color combo based on this "beachy keen" photo selected by Broni!

 I masked off the sun and sponged with Summer Sun ink, then reverse masked the sky and sponged So Saffron ink around the circle.  I think I should have added a wee bit of orange to define the edges of the sun some more...but there's always next time. The water and some of the sky were sponged with Bashful Blue and Pacific Point ink.

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.  You also don't want to miss the creation by our talented guest designer, Miriam Napier, from Miriam's Delirium!
