Color Throwdown

Here we are...another Color Throwdown challenge is up and running and you are going to LOVE the colors chosen by our hostess Broni! I'm hanging on to summer for dear life, so a floral creation won out over a possible pumpkin card!  

I used Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch for the layout (don't you love the large, wide open panel that is so perfect to use large elements?!).  Love the large houndstooth background stamp recently released by My Favorite Things and I definitely was thankful for my MISTI tool because it took 3 inkings before I got the area covered well with black ink!  I sponged the background leaf dies on the edges with Lucky Limeade (SU) ink.  The rose base was created by smooshing a small amount of Mustard Seed and a larger amount of Spiced Marmalade distress inks on acetate, spritzing with water then smooshing a panel of white CS over the ink. The small hello die is by Simon Says Stamp and the stitched rectangle dies are by Lil' Inker Designs.  Ribbon is Orange Zest satin by PTI.

Congratulations to Yapha Mason who is our guest star stamper this week!  Be sure and stop by her blog HERE.
