Color Throwdown

Hey, hey, know what day it is? It's Color Throwdown challenge day and you're going to LOVE the fabulous colors that Tammy has chosen for us! I went to my overflowing scrap paper pile and pulled out some blues and layered up a pair of stitched flags on a stitched rounded rectangle layer - two new (to me) Die-Namics from MFT!  The stitched circles are by Lil' Inker designs in Chocolate Chip and white.

The digi image is one of my faves from A Day For Daisies -  called On Top of the World.  I printed it on X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copics.  I recently bought the Hex Chart created by Sandy Allnock and wowzers...what a huge help in picking out Copic colors!!  It shows you visually similar colors adjacent to each other instead of the numerically similar colors.  It took me awhile to color it in, but it's SO worth it!  Best $4.00 you'll ever spend if you like to color with Copics!
Back to my card...I applied some Glass Bead Glitter gel by Faber Castell to the blue base using Simon Says Stamp's Circle Dots stencil. It adds such a fun and subtle hint of shine and sparkle! I fussy cut the digi image and adhered with Tombo Multi Mono liquid glue ~ an adhesive that stays out on my desk next to my glue gun all the time.  The sentiment is from SSS Circle Sayings stamp set. 

Congratulations go out to Claire from I Made This - My World of Craft who is our guest star stamper this week!

Your coloring is sooo gorgeous, the sweet image, too!!! I need one of those Hex Charts...I have such a hard time picking out compatable colors!!!

Love this sweet card with all the awesome die cuts. And you know I love that image! I bought the hex chart too, and I see that you have more Copics than me! I didn't realize until I colored the chart how many I was missing. I guess a shopping excursion is in order!

Love that stunning flower with the cute little snail on it, Wanda!!! I really like how you have put together all the elements to make a stunning card!!! The stickles(?) dots on the bg panel are lovely and add just the right amount of shimmer!!! Very cute card, Wanda!!!

Oh, this is so pretty Wanda. Love the flower and the fussy cutting. The touch of sparkle in the background looks great.

That flower is so pretty and so beautifully colored! Love the look of the glittery dots on your background. I may need to try some of that stuff!

That image is so sweet, Wanda and colored perfectly! I keep meaning to get that chart, but want to print it at work and keep forgetting to bring a piece of card stock with me!
