Color Throwdown #459

It's hump day and that means another Color Throwdown Challenge is on board! Vickie is our hostess and has a classy, timeless color combo - red, black and white - that I totally love!  I often have to brainstorm for a good while before a card idea comes to fruition, but this was a no brainer!  I immediately went for MFT's Striped Sentiment Strip Cover Plate die and Impression Obsession's Hydrangea Set.  I watercolored with Mijello Mission paints on Ranger watercolor cardstock using 2 different shades of red: Permanent Rose and Crimson Lake, then die cut the hydrangea petals.  I'm calling the bit of green a neutral color - lol.   

STAMPS: Hydrangea Set (Impression Obsession).
PAPER: White (PTI), Licorice (MFT), Lime Green (Reverse Confetti), Ranger Watercolor CS. 
INK: Lime Green (Reverse Confetti), Versamark.  
DIES: Hydrangea Set (IO), Stitched Sentiment Strips and Striped Sentiement Strip Cover Plate Die-Namics by MFT.

We're happy to welcome back the talented Tammy Hershberger from Stamp Happy who is joining us as a guest designer this month!  Tammy was formerly a full time design team member, so it's like having family back in the gallery!

We'd love to have you joining us in the challenge this week!
