Color Throwdown & Freshly Made Sketches



It's a new year with a new Color Throwdown Challenge brought to us by Amy Rohl - our hostess for the week! I used the current sketch that's up on the Freshly Made Sketches blog. Sadly, a dear lady from our church passed away, so instead of a celebratory new year's design...I'm needing a sympathy card.  The colors worked out perfectly!  The patterned papers are from Reverse Confetti's Free Spirit 6x6 pad and the sentiment die is by Simon Says Stamp.  The stamp set - Fine Feathers - is an oldie but goody from Waltzingmouse Stamps...a company that is no longer in
business.  I used the following inks for the feathers: Antique Linen distress oxide ink by Ranger, Silver Lining dye ink by WPlus9, and Versafine Onyx Black.

We're happy to have Debra James continue to join us as a guest designer in January since December was a short month with only two challenges!  Be sure to stop by her blog HERE and say hello.

What a lovely grouping of feathers! I love them in the natural colors. Beautiful background paper. All are so perfect for a sympathy card. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
