Color Throwdown #625

Hello again! Another Wednesday has rolled around and we have a wonderful color combo - brought to us by Susie - to get your mojo going for the next Color Throwdown challenge

My pink is leaning more toward a coral shade's all in the family - lol! Prior to my dad's passing on August 31, I tried to send him cards pretty often...especially since he couldn't have visitors during the Covid pandemic while in a nursing home. I decided to recycle some of the elements onto new cards. Here, I used the florals and the bird.

I smooshed some Blueprint Sketch distress oxide ink onto watercolor paper by applying the ink to a small piece of acetate, spritzing with water then dabbing the acetate randomly over the WC paper. I then splattered the same color over the dried background.

STAMPS: Feathered Friends Mini 1, Blossoming Branches, Wild Fields (sentiment) - all by Ink to Paper.

INK: Pale Peony, Berry Sorbet, Green Parakeet, New Leaf, Ripe Avocado, Honey Nut, Enchanted Evening, Orange Zest, True Black (Ink to Paper); Blueprint Sketch distress oxide.

PAPER: Brilliant Blue (retired SU), Ranger watercolor, White by Ink to Paper.

DIES: Border Bling: Skinny Postage, Blossoming Branches (Ink to Paper); Stitched Rectangles STAX Die-Namics (My Favorite Things).

Sure hope to see your entry in our gallery! For more inspiration, you can visit the Color Throwdown blog and check out the remainder of the design team's entries.            Happy stamping!      ~Wanda

Oh I love that blue watercolor background. I never think to pair this type of background with my regular stamped image. It really makes the images POP!!
