Happy Wednesday to all! There's another Color Throwdown challenge posted and you are going to love these gorgeous colors that Joan has chosen!
I am so in love with this wreath and the bird's nest inspired me to go with a bird theme.
I sponged the die cut bird with Elegant Eggplant ink and sponged the branch and bird cage with Crumb Cake ink. The leaves were die cut from a dotted swiss embossed piece of green in my scrap pile then sponged lightly with Old Olive ink while still in the die. I die cut the tea rose then sponged the edges with Regal Rose ink. I rubbed Crumb Cake ink over one side of my woodgrain embossing folder then inserted a piece of white CS and ran it through the Big Shot. This is one of my fave techniques to use! An eggplant medallion, a crystal charm, and a tiny tag sentiment with jute twine finished it up.
So...get your creative juices flowing and join us. If you don't have the exact colors, just use something close. If you upload to a public gallery, be sure and use the key words CTD241. Also, link up your card on the Color Throwdown blog using the linky tool at the bottom of the post.
