Color Throwdown

Are you ready for another gorgeous color combo? Lisa is our Color Throwdown Challenge hostess this week and is tempting me with this gorgeous bedroom (that's the next room on our remodel list, so I've got my eyes peeled for color possibilities!). Here is my take on the teal, lime green and white colors she chose...

I thought I'd finally get some ink on this Dylusions sentiment set and paired it up with one of Tim Holtz' crazy birds.  There is no painstaking fussy cutting needed with these matching Bird Crazy dies!  I colored the bird with
Copics and added Crystal Effects to the eyes.  I love the mini diamond pattern stamp - inked with Twisted Citron distress ink - that is part of a Dylusions clear stamp set by Ranger.  I then used some white texture paste with a border of mini dots from the Mini Halftone Borders stencil.  My new fave floral dies are the Perky Posies by Lil' Inker many possibilities to layer them up!  Once I completed the tag, it looked rather lost on a white base, so I decided to use a couple of neutrals (kraft and touch of black) to make it pop better.

I'm also entering this into Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge where anything goes this week!  Since Ranger is sponsoring the challenge, it was perfect to enter this card since it uses a couple different Ranger products.  

It's been great having Leslie Miller as our guest designer this month and I hate to see her time come to an end!  Thanks for all your inspiration, Leslie!  Stayed tuned next week when we reveal the April guestie!

Congratulations to our guest star stamper this week -  Jen of The Other Fickle Pixie (AKA MAGIC FLY BOOTS)!  Be sure and stop by her blog to say hello!
