Color Throwdown

Don't these weeks just fly by?! It's time again for a new Color Throwdown Challenge and Broni has chosen some fabulous colors - fuschia, red, black and white! Wow, those heels will put some pizzazz...and pain... in your life - lol!  There's nothing classier than using black and white with a pop of color on cards, so I couldn't wait to play with this combo!

Now that I've got matching dies (thanks, Altenew) to use with the Peony Scrolls set, I know I'll be reaching for it more often.  I started by pressing ink on an acrylic sheet, spritzing with water then blotting the colors - Picked Raspberry and Festive Berries distress inks - on TH watercolor cardstock.  The leaves were colored in with an Aquapainter and Smoky Slate ink by SU.  I love the patterned vellum stack (Winter Wonderland) that SU has in their Christmas catalog and adhered a strip of the striped paper using Elmer's Craft Bond adhesive spray.  I used a VERY quick, light spray and placed the paper face down in my trash can so I wouldn't get adhesive all over my desk.  The sentiment is from Altenew's Label Love stamp set.

We're happy to have Lin Brandyberry as our guest star stamper this week!  She has some amazing talent and you don't want to miss her beautiful card!
