Color Throwdown

Hello everyone! There's a new Color Throwdown Challenge up and Amy Rysavy has some great pastel colors for us this week!  When I saw the multiple balloons, I headed straight for Simon Says Stamp's Balloon dies.  I'm needing a lot of birthday cards lately, so this will add another one to my stash.

I am CASEing a card by Sheri Carroll seen HERE for my layout.
I did some watercolor washes using Peacock Feathers, Spun Sugar with a touch of Worn Lipstick and Milled Lavender with a touch of Wilted Violet distress inks on Ranger watercolor cardstock.  After drying with a heat gun, I die cut 3 different sized balloons.   I added some white splatters with Memories Unicorn pigment ink and a stamp from SU's Gorgeous Grunge set.  The striped border is from Simple Stories' Snap Color Vibe 6x6 pad and I layered a strip of washi tape beside it.  Some black thread and clear sequins finished it off.  The sentiment die and stamp are also from Simon Says Stamp and is their Sending and Wishing set with matching Wishing die.

We're happy to announce the talented Amy Tsuruta of Tsuruta Designs is our May guest designer!  Welcome, Amy! 

Congrats also to Maja Mihelj - our guest star stamper on the blog today!
