Color Throwdown

It's Wednesday and that means there's a new Color Throwdown Challenge on board! Broni is our hostess and has chosen some fabulous colors - cornflower blue, bright green, white - that are so striking together! 

My first struggle was trying to come up with the right shade of blue.  I finally went with Blueprint Sketch distress ink with highlight stamping using Chipped Sapphire.  The leaves were stamped with Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn distress inks.  The background behind the striped cover plate die is a piece of watercolor cardstock that has the above inks smooshed over it.  I wanted to add the illusion of dew drops, so added some Grey Mist Nuvo Jewel Drops.

STAMPS: Flashy Florals (MFT).
DIES: Flashy Florals (MFT), Small Hello (Simon Says Stamp), Stripe Sentiment Cover Plate (MFT).
