Color Throwdown #407



Here we are with another Color Throwdown Challenge for you and Lori has some fabulous summery colors - lime green, yellow and blue!  I first dabbled with some yellow and green watercoloring using an angled brush.  I thought I was going to add blue butterflies, but suddenly I changed direction and decided on this sentiment and bird die by Concord and 9th.  


Generally, watercolors lighten up considerably when you dry them, but I'm finding out that Gold Class Mission watercolors stay much darker than distress inks that I often use.  The blue is a little darker than I planned, but hey...we always say as long as it's close and we're having fun...it's a go!  Besides...it was late at night and I simply didn't want to do it over - lol!  

STAMPS: By Your Side (Concord and 9th).
PAPER: Key Lime Collection by Bo Bunny; Ranger watercolor CS.
DIES: By Your Side Bird Die (Concord and 9th); Edge Essentials Confetti Cuts (Reverse Confetti).

Congrats to our guest star stamper - Karen Davis of Karen Creates Cards!  Be sure to stop by her blog and say hello.

Sadly, this is the last week for our uber talented August guest designer - Wanda Guess!  Her work is so inspiring!  But...stay tuned...next week we'll announce a new guestie.

To get all the details on how to play along with the challenge, please go to the Color Throwdown blog and check out the info on the right sidebar!  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.
