Color Throwdown #452

Hey everyone! The new colors for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge are red, yellow, green and turquoise.  Barbara Anders is our hostess this week and was inspired by this street with a row of rainbow colored houses!  There were so many different ways I could have gone with the colors, but ultimately I chose some new goodies from Reverse Confetti's July release for this 5 inch square card.

The base of the card is RC's Aqua cardstock.  I cut the Thanks
Square Confetti Cuts die from white heavy weight CS then layered up some of the new stamps from RC's Build A Bunch stamp set with matching dies. I'm using the sketch for Freshly Made Sketches' last challenge and reversed the washi tape element to the
opposite corner.  The tiny cross-stitched detail is from the Stitched dies by Paper Smooches.  I colored the images with Copics after stamping with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on X-Press It Blending Card (my favorite paper for Copic coloring that doesn't smear!).  The flower centers were highlighted with black Enamel Accents.

For more details on how to play along, head over to the Color Throwdown Blog and you'll find the information on the right sidebar!  You can also visit the rest of the design team's creations for more inspiration by clicking on the links below:
