Color Throwdown

It's Color Throwdown Challenge time again and this week Melody is our hostess! I loved working with these colors and thought I was going to go with a masculine theme, but somehow, my brain took a turn toward some rolled roses instead! :-)

I started by using a hexagon stencil and sponged with Soft Sky then stippled Night of Navy ink using a stipple tool.  I removed the stencil then stamped French Script in Old Olive.  I was all over the place with products from a variety of companies... 

STAMPS: Tag Its #12 (PTI), French Script (SU)
PAPER: Night of Navy, Vintage Cream
INK: Night of Navy, Old Olive, Soft Sky
ACCESSORIES:  Hexagon die by SB, TCW Mini Hexagons stencil, Rolled Roses Die-Namics by MFT, Medium Leafy Flourish Die-Namics by MFT, Tiny Tags die by PTI, Avery Elle Lucky Blend sequins, Pearls (colored with Copic marker B37).
