Color Throwdown

Hi, everyone! It's yours truly hosting the new Color Throwdown challenge today! I was inspired by this photo from a local lavender farm in Harrisonburg, VA - White Oak Lavender.  I've only seen their products in local gift shops, but it's my goal to actually visit the farm this summer.  I had an ulterior motive when I chose the colors since I wanted to use the new Lavender stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs' January release.

I started by die cutting the jar using ODBD Apothecary Bottles die then stamping the Apothecary Bottles image with Versafine Onyx Black ink and embossing with clear EP.  Coloring was done with Copics (BV0000, BV000, BV00, E55, E57).  Flower and leaves dies are by Spellbinders. The sentiment is from ODBD Special Blend stamp set. play along, you don't have to use exact colors - just something that's close.  If you upload to a public gallery, please use the keyword CTD 275 and also link up your card on the Color Throwdown blog using the linky tool.
