Color Throwdown Challenge #128


Hello everyone...it's Wednesday and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!! Laura picked such fabulous colors for us this week....at first I thought about making a Valentine and then decided the colors were just perfect for these adorable Asian dolls by Hero Arts.
They were colored with copics and the little lanterns were attached to the silver cording with glue dots. I took a few artistic liberties with the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 103 by flipping it and using the string of lanterns as the band under the circle.
Recipe:
Stamps: Hero Arts Four Dolls
Paper: White, Black, Orchid Opulence, Bo Bunny Crush dp
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Nestabilities, Dotted Swiss Embossing Folder, Silver Cording, Copics
Be sure to check out what the CTD team has created with these colors!!

I hope you can join us for the Color Throwdown Challenge......check out their blog for all the details!!!

We are supposed to have another Winter blast today with sleet, rain, and freezing temps....yikes!!! Sounds like a good day to curl up in front of the fire with a good book!!!!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!!!

Hi Joan, that's a super card, and the colour combo really suits your oriental ladies. I love all the black, with the hair and mats, looks so funky with the reds and pinks. Oh, and the lanterns strung at the top is just inspired! CoB
