Color Throwdown

Only 6 months away from a new year...YIKES! Slow down summer!  Ready or not...July is here and it's time for another Color Throwdown challenge!  Check out these gorgeous colors that Jodi has chosen based on this beautiful room decor!  Here's my take on the colors...

I placed some vellum behind the 'happy' sentiment which made it stand out more clearly, then I used foam tape to mount it to the stenciled panel.  Here's what else I used...

STAMPS: Bitty Bouquets (PTI), Phrase Play #5 (PTI).
PAPER: Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise, White.
INK: Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie and Crumb Cake by SU, Beanstalk by WPlus9, Memento Tuxedo Black.
ACCESSORIES: Happy Frame die and Bitty Bouquets dies by PTI, Stitched rectangle die by Lil Inker Designs, Tim Holtz stencil, Dimensional sticker by Recollections.

Since it's a new month, we are introducing a new guest designer.  A big welcome to the talented Valentyna Komisarenko from the Flourishtina blog!  Looking forward to seeing all your creations!

Such a pretty card Wanda. Love the mixed media feel to it. Those background dots look great. The happy sentiment die-cut looks awesome with the little flowers in the corner.

Valentyna Komisarenko said...

Such a sweet card, Wanda! Love how you made an accent with blue die cut and vellum!

Celeste Goff said...
