Color Throwdown

Happy hump day everyone! The new Color Throwdown challenge is up and running and I just LOVE these colors chosen by Lynn: yellow, green, aqua and white! Isn't this table setting a gorgeous inspiration?  It just screams spring!  The lemons led me immediately to SU's Lemon Zest stamp set!  I inked the lemons with Bumblebee ink then "kissed" the edges with Pistachio ink - dye inks by Reverse Confetti.

After "smooshing" some Peacock Feathers distress ink on an
acrylic block then spraying with water, I picked up some ink with a brush and splattered it over the white panel of watercolor cardstock.  I then painted some random squiggle markings to create this fun background.  Some pale yellow Nuvo Jewel Drops were the finishing touch!
The card inside has this fun continuation of the sentiment.....

STAMPS: Lemon Zest (SU).
PAPER: Iced Aqua (Reverse Confetti), Black and White Basics 6x6 pad by MFT.
INK: Bumblebee, Pistachio (RC), Versafine Onyx Black, Peacock Feathers distress ink (Ranger).
MISC: Lemoncello Nuvo Jewel Drops, Lemon Zest punch (SU), Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-Namics by MFT.
