Color Throwdown #414

Happy hump day and welcome to another Color Throwdown Challenge! Amy Rohl is our hostess this week and she's chosen an awesome color combo - aqua, lime green and gray! Here is my card...

The challenge was perfect for me to use my two favorite distress inks - Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron.  I smooshed ink on acrylic blocks, spritzed with water then pressed some Ranger watercolor cardstock over the blocks until I had a good mix of color.  I dried the ink with a heat gun between color changes.  The watercoloring makes this card eligible for Concord and 9th's second Where Creativity Meets C9 Challenge.

STAMPS: Love You. Mean It and Barnwood Background by Concord and 9th.
INK: Silver Lining, Fairy Dust (WPlus9); Peacock Feathers, Twisted Citron (Tim Holtz' distress inks); Versafine Onyx Black. 
DIES:  By Your Side Bird die by Concord and 9th; Traditional Tags STAX by MFT.
