Color Throwdown

Hi everyone! It's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge and this week, Lynn has a super springtime group of colors for us! Love the beautiful bouquet of pansies which inspired me to ink up this new tulip image by Flourishes!

After coloring with Copics on X-Press It Blending Card, I fussy cut the image and popped it up on foam dots over the gingham banner.  I layered this over a white base that has a tulip frame embossed around the edges.  The sentiment was stamped on a die cut shape from Flourishes' Classic Keyhole template die.  Tiny lavender rhinestones were added to the sentiment.

 Remember, you don't have to use exact colors to play along...just something close.  Be sure and label your project with CTD236 if you upload to a public gallery.  You'll need to link up on the Color Throwdown blog as well. Can't wait to see what you create with these gorgeous colors!  While you're there, be sure and check out the rest of the design team's can visit their blogs below.  Since it's a new month, we have a new guest designer - the talented Frances Bryne from Stamp Owl's Studio!  Welcome Frances!
