Color Throwdown #653


Another Wednesday means another Color Throwdown challenge! Broni is hosting this week and has some fabulous colors for us: pink, orange, yellow and green. It was a great time to break out my new Sitting Pretty porch dies with accessories just released at The Greetery. While I had a great time playing with these new "toys", I have a sad thing to report in that the geranium dies just disappeared into thin air and I've not found them after LOTS of searching for several days! I went through my trash can THREE times! I've had similar die losses in the past, but have always found them eventually. I'm still hoping they show up! That explains why only one pot has geraniums in it. I had to venture through other Greetery sets to find some tiny flowers that would also work - lol.

The background was color blended using Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn and Tumbled Glass distress oxide inks on Bristol Smooth Surface paper. The rocking chair is so amazing with the layering of the pieces giving it such realistic dimension! I added washi tape to the rug to jazz it up a bit.

STAMPS: Sentiment Suite: Birthday (The Greetery).

PAPER: White (Papertrey Ink); Bristol Smooth Surface.

INK: Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge, Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry, Kitsch Flamingo, Black Soot, Peeled Paint, Mowed Lawn, Twisted Citron, Tumbled Glass distress oxide inks by Ranger; True Black (Papertrey Ink).

DIES: Sitting Pretty, Sitting Pretty Accessories, Sentiment Suite Basics (The Greetery).

Thanks for stopping by...hope to see you in the gallery!

Wanda, your card is gorgeous! Love how you chose to use the challenge colors.

Darling card, Wanda. I do hope you find your missing dies.

I've lost dies before, and one place I found them was adhered to the bottom of something magnetic. If you have anything like that, give it a try. I also had two photopolymer stamps stick to the bottom of a plate and go through the dishwasher. They came out nice and clean, but on the bottom of the dishwasher. Good luck!

Wanda, your scene is beautiful! And perfect for the color throwdown, I love your yellows! If you don’t find your geranium die, I’d be very happy to send you some diecuts. I’ve lost things in my craft room and I know that sinking feeling, so please don’t hesitate to ask. I love your work! 😊

Hi Wanda, I just wanted to stop and say how much I love your card. And if you would like some extra geranium diecuts, I’d be happy to send them. I’ve lost a small stamp and die myself, so I know how you feel. I love your work! 😊
