Color Throwdown

Hey everyone! Are you ready for another Color Throwdown Challenge? I hope so, because you won't want to miss Barbara's great inspiration photo that inspired the hot pink, green (note it's a bluish green shade...leaning towards teal), black and white color combination!  It's been awhile since I've played with Altenew's Peony Scrolls and I thought they'd be perfect with the hot pink!

 I used last week's sketch for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge (missed the deadline unfortunately!).  I die cut the flowers and leaves then stamped the images using Memento Tuxedo Black.  I colored with Copics (RV02, RV04, RV06, RV09, G12, YG45, YG63) then popped some of them with foam tape.  I added a zigzag SRM sticker stitch to the sentiment flag which was clear embossed after stamping in black.  A trio of clear sequins finished off the design.
STAMPS: Peony Scrolls and Painted Greetings by Altenew.
PAPER: Recollections' Black and White printed cardstock; X-Press It Blending Card.
DIES: Stitched Fishtail Flags Die-Namics by MFT; Stitched squares by Lil' Inker Designs; Peony Scrolls by Altenew.

We're happy to announce that Leslie Miller of Running With Scissors is our March guest designer!  I've been a fan of Leslie's work for a long time and look forward to having her join us!

Our guest star stamper is Michele Greenwood of Whimsical Creations!  Congratulations Michele!  Be sure and stop by her blog to check out her gorgeous card!
