Color Throwdown #425

It's Wednesday, so that means there's a new Color Throwdown Challenge happening! Jodi is our hostess and has this beautiful color palette - mustard, blue and black - for us... inspired by this great scarf!  Here is my take on it...

I was in a smooshing mood and created the background using two distress inks: Mustard Seed and Mermaid Lagoon.  Even though I dried the colors between steps, they still blended into green in certain areas.  :-(  I used a Tim Holtz bubble stencil to add some white modeling paste which doesn't show up much in my photo.  I combined Concord and 9th's bouquet die with the Simon Says Stamp "Sending and Wishing" stamp set with matching die.  The stitched rectangle strip is a die by Lil' Inker Designs.

For more details on how to play along, head on over to the Color Throwdown Blog and you'll find the information on the right sidebar!  You can also visit the rest of the design team's creations for more inspiration (click on the links below):
