Color Throwdown

It's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge with Lynn as our hostess! You are going to love these hot, summertime colors - red raspberry, pink, lime green, and yellow - inspired by this refreshing drink photo!  Here is my take on it...

I haven't used tilted panels like this for some time and struggled with finding patterned papers that would work.  I didn't quite use the neon shades of color as shown in the photo but think it's close enough to work.  I had fun with it anyway and that's what it's all about!  The flowers were 3 step stamps from Altenew's Vintage Flowers stamp set.  The rose has Melon Mambo then Real Red then Cherry Cobbler inks layered up.  The smaller flowers used Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry with black ink for the centers.  I fussy cut and layered with foam tape over a die cut leafy flourish (MFT) from Sour Apple CS (MFT) sponged with Beanstalk ink by WPlus9.  Papers are from Echo Park's "Splendid Sunshine" pad and from My Mind's Eye "On the Bright Side" pad.  The sentiment is from Altenew's Painted Greetings stamp set.  As always, I used my MISTI to stamp the sentiment twice for a crisper, darker coverage.

Congrats to our guest star stamper this week - Vicki Finger of Twinkling Paper Studio!
