Color Throwdown

Happy hump day everyone! Lynn has a really fabulous, rich color palette for the new Color Throwdown Challenge inspired by these yummy cookies: pink, hot pink, purple/mulberry and gold! 

I got some happy mail last week from a fairly new stamp company - Concord and 9th. I loved this fun Love You, Mean It stamp set with fabulous sentiments, only to change my mind and add a sentiment from another set called By Your Side!  Don't you just love their great fonts?!  I gold embossed the wreath then stamped the larger roses with Rich Razzleberry - stamped off once for the filler stamp.  The roses were all stamped with black ink for the outline then the teeny roses were colored in with Copics - RV02 and RV04 - for the two shades of pink.  The pinks didn't show up well enough to suit me, so I opted for a touch of washi tape that had both shades! I matted the panel with metallic gold and Plum Pudding (PTI) cardstock.  I embellished with washi tape and some SRM sticker stitches.

Congratulations to Bonnie Sharp of The Lucky Clucker blog!  She's our guest star stamper this week!

I've never stamped with anything from Concord and 9th but I sure do love the card you created using their stuff! So pretty with the gold embossing and rosebuds.
