Color Throwdown

It's Wednesday and that means there is a new Color Throwdown Challenge happening! Barbara Anders is our hostess with a great color palette that's perfect for Halloween, fall or whatever else your little heart might want to create! Don't you just love those eyeballs in the candy corn? :-)

I thought it would be fun to use 3 of the colors to stamp a leafy background.  I then colored up this trio of pumpkins with Copics, added Wink of Stella clear glitter brush highlights to the leaves and tendrils, then fussy cut and popped with foam dots.  I opted to use Crushed Curry ink instead of Daffodil Delight for a more fallish hue and also because it matched the sentiment banner better!
I'm also entering this into Chupa's Sketchbook Saturday Challenge.  What a great layout! don't have to have the exact colors.  Use something close and then link it up on the Color Throwdown blog using the linking tool at the bottom of the post.  If you post to an online gallery, please use the keyword, CTD263.
