Color Throwdown #173




Good morning everyone!!! Are you ready for another Color Throwdown Challenge?? We are all back from our holiday vacation and now we are ready to get inky!!! We even changed up our look....we added an inspiration photo with the colors...how fun!!!! Bar is our hostess with the mostess this week and she has picked some awesome colors....they are soooo classy!!!  Basic Gray ink was used to stamp the diamond pattern which is a stamp from Rubbernecker's Paris 1908 set #527 and the chandelier and damask from Rubbernecker's Clowns and Crowns set #528 were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black. The sentiment is from RN's Love set #545. The big red bloomers finish it off.

Remember, you don't have to use the exact colors to play along...use what ever you have that is similar to the challenge colors. Be sure to add CTD173 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
