Color Throwdown #402

Barbara Anders is hostess for this week's colors at the Color Throwdown Challenge.  Aren't they gorgeous?!  I knew they'd be perfect to ink up some new (to me) stamps by MFT.  

I was inspired by this card by Dena Rekow on Pinterest and knew I wanted to create a floral collage over bold black and white stripes! I used a variety of Tim Holtz distress inks for all the images: Twisted Citron, Shabby Shutters, Cracked Pistachio, Wilted Violet, and Carved Pumpkin.  The black centers weren't bold enough to suit me after using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, so I added black Enamel Accents and that was the perfect touch to add a bold black and some shine!

STAMPS: Flashy Florals (My Favorite Things).
PAPER: Metallic gold CS, Black and White CS by PTI.
DIES: Small Hello by Simon Says Stamp; Flashy Florals Die-Namics by MFT; Stitched Stripe by Lil' Inker Designs.

 Congrats to Colleen Begley, our guest star stamper this week!
