Color Throwdown

It's Color Throwdown Challenge day and Lisa is our hostess with the mostest! Check out these awesome colors: peach, raspberry, plum and white! It's making me hungry for some fruit salad - lol!  I did a watercolor wash on some Ranger WC paper using Picked Raspberry, Dusty Concord and Dried Marigold distress inks.  Using WPlus9's Outlined Roses die, I cut out the roses and leaves from Neenah Solar White CS then sponged on Dried Marigold, Abandoned Coral, Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves distress inks. I sponged WPlus9's Beanstalk and Mojito dye inks on the leaves.  

I gold embossed the sentiment (WPlus9's Sending, Hoping, Wishing set) on vellum then used SU's window label punch and adhered with two tiny black brads.  The "sending" word die was cut twice to layer for more dimension.  I splattered the base panel with Heidi Swapp gold Color Shine and added some gold sequins.  The wonky stitched frame die is by Lil' Inker Designs.

Our guest star stamper is Rosemary Dennis of Hey There...rosigirl! Be sure to stop by her blog to comment on her beautiful card!

We're also thrilled to have Kara Vrabel of K and R Designs as our guest designer this month!

You are so good at making lovely watercoloured bgs, Wanda!!!! I can never achieve such a great look :( !!!! The roses are so beautiful and I love the small vellum strip with the embossed sentiment - the black pearls tie it beautifully to the black die cut word!!!! The splatters and sequins complete the picture perfectly!!!! Beautifully done!!!
