Color Throwdown

Spring is officially here as of yesterday, so my card for the new Color Throwdown Challenge is to celebrate spring's arrival! Jodi is our hostess and has chosen black, white and peach for our colors.  I spied some green in the photo as well and just had to add some leaves to my image. 

That large gingham print chair led me to use Concord and 9th's Plaid Background stamp for starters.

This is my first time using any products by Neat and Tangled, but their Hello Spring stamp set and matching die in their last release was too much to resist any longer! The florals are from the Brushed Blossom stamp set by Concord and 9th and were fussy cut and popped with foam tape.  To get the plaid background to stamp so clearly required multiple inking and stamping with my MISTI.  I love this look but will admit it takes a lot of muscle power and re-inking to get it to stamp properly.  I think I stamped it at least five times! 

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:
