Color Throwdown

 Hey, it's hump day and you know that means there's a new Color Throwdown challenge going on!  I am really loving this combo which was perfect to ink up some new WPlus9 stamps that hopped into my shopping cart before vacation!  
Here's my take on Lori's lovely colors...

Using WPlus9 Pure Color dye inks, I stamped the large leafy spray of florals in Beanstalk.  I dye cut the flowers and some of the leaves and did some 2-step stamping then popped them with small foam dots.  The anemones were stamped off with Little Piggy then Sweet Nectar used for the highlight images.  I added some stamped splatters and am trying to convince myself that it doesn't look like the card has chickenpox - lol!  To get a bolder black image for the sentiment, I used my trusty MISTI tool to stamp it twice.

STAMPS: Watercolored Anemones, Greetings and Salutations, and Ink Splats - all by WPlus9.
PAPER: Crisp Cantaloupe (SU), White (PTI).
INK: Beanstalk, Little Piggy, Sweet Nectar - dye inks by WPlus9.
ACCESSORIES: Stitched rectangle dies (Lil' Inker Designs), Watercolored Anemonies dies (WPlus9), Black enamel dots.
