Color Throwdown

Hey everyone! Check out these GORGEOUS colors that Jodi has chosen for the Color Throwdown Challenge this week: teal, aqua and gold!!  I knew right away I wanted to watercolor a background using distress inks (Peacock Feathers, Pine Needles, Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass) and then added some splatters of Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine.  


I die cut 2 butterflies (Concord and 9th's Floral and Flutter Dies) - one in Tropical Teal and one in White CS.  The sentiment and coordinating word die is from Verve's latest release: Amazing Adjectives die set and Simply Amazing stamp set.  

Congratulations to our guest star stamper this week - Betty Keefe!  Be sure and stop by her blog to say hello!

To get all the details on how to play along, please go to the Color Throwdown blog!  You can also check out the rest of the design teams' creations for more inspiration on the CTD blog or you can clink on their blog links below.

I love this so much it prompted me to buy my first ever Verve products! Had to go right over and get both the stamp and die sets. Sheesh! Awesome use of the colors, Wanda. Love the gold splotches and that stringy butterfly, too!

Lynn Put said...

WOW! Wanda this is fabulous! Your watercoloring with the gold metallic dots looks fantastic.

Lori said...

Fabulous! Love the bold background with the gold splotches. And that Verve set (and the dies) is quickly becoming a favorite!
