Color Throwdown #429



Hello blog friends! Vickie is our hostess for the Color Throwdown Challenge this week and you are gonna LOVE these colors! Isn't this a great contemporary office space?!  I was definitely inspired by the striped rug...thus the chevrons and diagonal striped panel dies.  Of course, I couldn't resist taking off on the florals that are in the photo as well.  So...here is my take on the orange, turquoise and black color combo using Reverse Confetti products...

After adhering the chevrons and the diagonal striped panel, it was flower arranging time using Leafy dies - cut from RC's Iced Aqua CS then sponged with their Aqua ink.  The flowers were stamped with RC's Tangerine ink.  Highlights were inked with SU's Tangerine Tango.  A black gel pen was used to darken up the flower centers.  Some clear sequins and a triple layered sentiment from metallic copper CS finished up this fun floral design.

STAMPS: Garden Bunch (Reverse Confetti).
DIES: Love Note, Triple Chevies, Leafy, Diagonal Stripe Pretty Panel (all by Reverse Confetti).
