Color Throwdown

Happy hump day everyone! Monika is our hostess for today's Color Throwdown challenge and has chosen these vivid pink and purple colors paired with black! I chose to throw in a bit of metallic gold for the sparkle element. 

I knew right away I wanted to dust off my rarely used Dylusions ink sprays and create a fun background.  I used Bubblegum Pink and Crushed Grape.  My first attempt was to spray over a stencil but that was an epic fail.  I had a white panel with the gold splatters (Heidi Swapp color shine) on my leftover pile, so went with spraying the 2 colors over it and decided it was a keeper. :-)  The leafy flourish is a Cheery Lynn Designs die and the roses - from PTI's Rosy Posy set - were die cut and stamped with Picked Raspberry distress ink - stamped off once for the 1st step.  The sentiment is a PTI die from the Wet Paint set of word dies.
