Happy Wednesday everyone! Joan has a really yummy color palette for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge! I'm really wishing there was a smellavision app for this photo!
Here's how I interpreted these great colors...
It's funny sometimes how a card evolves. I had stamped a 4x6" panel of plaid using Pale Plum, Rich Razzleberry and Pear Pizzazz inks and thought I'd feature a larger plaid area...but...I also wanted to use this large MFT sentiment that fits in their die. I suddenly took a U turn and cut out the plaid using the same die, cut it in half and adhered it to both ends of the sentiment. The scalloped rose was die cut from vanilla CS, then I sponged the edges in Rich Razzleberry. The leaves were from my leftovers pile. Just realized I used 5 different dies from 3 different companies!
Here's what I used:
STAMPS: Plaid Background Builder (MFT), Grand Greetings (MFT), Dream Big (Verve)
PAPER: Pear Pizzazz, Rich Razzleberry, Vintage Cream
INK: Pale Plum, Rich Razzleberry, Pear Pizzazz, Versafine Onyx Black
ACCESSORIES: Peek-a-boo Dots Die-Namics (MFT), Royal Rose Die-Namics (MFT), Vertical Greetings Die-Namics (MFT), Dreamy Leaves die by Verve, Stitched scallop border die by Lil' Inker Designs.
Remember, you don't have to have the exact colors listed...just use something close. Be sure to use the keyword CTD256 when you post to a public gallery and you also want to link it up on the Color Throwdown blog.
