Color Throwdown

Check out the great new color combo for this week's Color Throwdown challenge! Vickie has chosen this serene and gorgeous bedroom for our inspiration! Since the room had a crisp, clean design,  I went with a CAS card...lots of white space and minimal stamping to keep with the feel of the photo.

I used acrylic blocks as "stamps" with Tumbled Glass and Broken China distress inks.  After heat drying the ink, I then stamped this fun new poppy from Altenew's recent release.  I added some orange splatters by wetting a watercolor pencil, picking up the color with a small brush, then tapping the brush on the pencil to release the splatter of color. 

STAMPS: Painted Poppy (Altenew).
PAPER: Tim Holtz watercolor paper, Orange Zest (PTI), White (PTI).
INK: Versafine Onyx Black, Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Spiced Marmalade, Ripe Persimmon, Peeled Paint distress inks by Tim Holtz.
ACCESSORIES: Signature sequins by Verve.

Congrats are in order for our guest star stamper for this week - Doni High of Lime Green Giggles
