Color Throwdown

It's Wednesday and you know what that's time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge! Barbara Anders is our hostess this week and has chosen pink, gray and kraft for our colors. I really love this bedroom ensemble and am saving the idea for our future bedroom remodel that is next on our renovation list.  

I had intentions of creating a sympathy card with this subdued, rather neutral combo, then needed a sentiment that wouldn't cover up too much.  This one from PTI's Boutique Borders: Sympathy stamp set by Dawn McVey was perfect! I used Spun Sugar distress ink to create a watercolor wash on the card base.  Over that is a die cut panel using PTI's Quatrefoil Cover Plate die.  The floral stamps are from Altenew's Hisbiscus Bouquet stamp set with matching dies.  I used Spun Sugar distress ink for the flowers and Warm Wool dye ink for the leaves and Silver Lining dye ink - both by WPlus9 - for the image outlines.  The sentiment die banner is from PTI's Tag Sale Quilted Die set. 

To play along with us, please go to the Color Throwdown Challenge blog for all the details!  For more inspiration from the rest of the design team, click on their links below:
