Color Throwdown

Hey everyone! It's hump day and that means a new Color Throwdown challenge! Broni is our hostess and she's given us a gorgeous color palette! 

I started with white embossing the retired SU Antique Background stamp on TH watercolor CS then did a water wash and added Peacock Feathers and Peeled Paint distress inks.  I sponged these same inks on a die cut butterfly.  The chevron die cuts are from my scrap pile, so I'm not sure of their exact color name.  The photo colors don't blend as well as the card IRL, so not sure what's up with that! 

Congratulations to Cassie Trask who is our featured star stamper this week!  Be sure and stop by her blog - A Day in the Life of a Homeschooling Mom - and say hello!

For more inspiration, you can visit the design team's blog links below or you can go to the Color Throwdown blog to see everyone's creations there.

STAMPS: Antique Background (SU), The Tweet Life (Reverse Confetti) - sentiment.
ACCESSORIES: Chevron Confetti Cuts die by Reverse Confetti, Butterfly die by Cheery Lynn Designs, Stitched rectangle die by Lil' Inker Designs, Wood dots by Teresa Collins.
