Color Throwdown

Are you ready for a fabulous new color combo? The Color Throwdown Challenge is hosted by the fabulous Jodi this week and she's chosen aqua, pink, kraft and white!  Here's my take on these yummy colors...

I'm loving these new Essentially  and Vintage Bottles stamps by Impression Obsession - designed by Dina Kowal - that allow me to combine 2 of my current passions: essential oils and papercrafting!  I wanted a watercolored BG and because Tim Holtz hasn't created an aqua shade of distress ink yet...I mixed Cracked Pistachio and Tumbled Glass to create my own aqua.  I also added Worn Lipstick ink to the mix.  Some washi tape and a stitched sticker from SRM's Valentine pack were added.  I used my MISTI to double stamp the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black and then heat embossed it with black EP.  I finished it off with a wooden heart embellishment!

Congrats to our Guest Star Stamper this week - Channin Pelletier of the Craft Ghetto blog!
