Color Throwdown #420

Hey everyone! I'm hosting this week's Color Throwdown Challenge using the following colors: light blue, sage green, gray and amber/yellow.  I was determined to use a new to me stamp/die set by Altenew called Poinsettia and Pine.

All of the images were embossed with Stampendous Detail White embossing powder on Ranger watercolor CS then watercolored with distress inks.  The pine branches were embossed directly onto the base panel and the others were die cut with some of them popped with foam tape for more dimension. I splattered some Hickory Smoke ink over the background and added a tiny scallop edge of black CS using Reverse Confetti's Edge Essentials die.

STAMPS: Poinsettia and Pine (Altenew); Holiday Wishes (Altenew).
INK: Tumbled Glass, Fossilized Amber, Hickory Smoke, Evergreen Bough, Cracked Pistachio, Mowed Lawn distress inks by Ranger; Versamark; Versafine Onyx Black.
PAPER: Christmas Wish 6x6 pad by My Mind's Eye.

Congratulations to the talented Kim Hahn - our guest star stamper this week!  Be sure to stop by her blog and say hello.
