Color Throwdown

Another Wednesday is here, so that means it's time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge.  Tammy is our hostess this week and has a great color combo that has so many fun possibilities!  

I decided to dust off my Tim Holtz Leaf Blueprint stamp set after being inspired by this beautiful card by Tenia Nelson.  I black embossed the leaf image twice on TH watercolor CS, then used yellow and lime green Pelikan paint to color the images.  After heat drying, I splattered black paint over the leaves.  I used a 1/8" strip of score tape down the middle of the leaf and curled up the leaf edges.  The sentiment is Every Season Plain Jane by Verve.

Congrats to our guest star stamper this week - Marcie Sharp of Sharp Designs! Be sure and stop by her blog and leave her some love!

This is so fabulous, Wanda! Love the vibrant coloring on that leaf and the sweet little zigzag detail.
