Color Throwdown


This week's Color Throwdown Challenge is being hosted by the talented Lynn!  Isn't that a fabulous inspiration photo?!  This happens to be one of my all time fave color combos, too!


I was inspired by the scalloped tablecloth, so layered up some punched scallops (EKSuccess) using papers from Martha Stewart's Holidays mat pad.  I die cut a pair of hearts (Cheery Lynn Designs) and added 3 new Die-Namics by MFT: Mini hybrid heirloom rose, Keys and Locks, Leaf Filled Flourish.  A couple of crimped cardboard shapes by Jenni Bowlin were used.  The sentiment is from Verve's "Tag Time" set and the sentiment flag was stamped using Lil Inker Designs' Sentiment Flags stamp set.  Edges of the rose, leafy flourish and lock/key were all sponges in their respective ink colors.  This was a fun collage to create!  

If you need some more inspiration...head on over to the Color Throwdown Challenge blog or you can visit each of the design team members in the list below:
