Color Throwdown

It's Wednesday and that means there's a new Color Throwdown Challenge on board! Lori is our hostess with the mostest this week and she has a warm and cozy photo for our color inspiration: pale pink, pale yellow and red.

I know...I're thinking when am I ever going to stamp
with any set other than Pretty Peonies!  Yes, I have a problem!  I'm a fan of this easy watercolor look. :-)  I colored the stamps with Tim Holtz distress markers (Spun Sugar, Barn Door, Mustard Seed, Pumice Stone) and stamped on TH watercolor cardstock.  I did very little blending with a brush since I used 2 step stamping this time.  I found these "In Bloom" papers by MME that fit the colors very closely and thought this stamp set would coordinate well.  The layout is based on Freshly Made Sketches challenge #157.  The sentiment strip is barely visible, but it's there...stamped on vellum.

Our star stamper this week is the talented Lin Brandyberry!  You don't want to miss her gorgeous card!
