Color Throwdown #178


Good morning everyone!! Are you ready for another Color Throwdown Challenge?? Keva  is our hostess with the mostess this week and she has picked a warm and sunny group of colors and a mighty yummy
inspiration photo!!!

When I saw the colors I knew I wanted to use the Cat's Meow Happy Owlentines Day set...aren't those little love owls just the cutest!!! The sun was cut out of Papertrey Ink's Summer Sun using a round Nestabilities. The owl image was stamped three times...once on three different cardstocks....Cajun Craze,  Early Expresso, and Kiwi Kiss. The owls were cutout of Cajun Craze and embossed, the branch was cut out of Early Expresso, and the leaves were cut out of  Kiwi Kiss. They were all popped up with pop dots and the sentiment from the same set, sticker hearts, and Summer sun ribbon finish it off.

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Catered Crop Challenge - hearts
2. Everybody Art Challenge - love
3. Try it on Tuesdays Challenge - card for a true love
4. Tuesday Throwdown - be my valentine
5. Craft Your Passion - anything goes and no designer paper
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 CTD178 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!

Morning Joan, and yes those owls are the cutest indeed. I love this, it's great how you stamped the image 3 times onto different colours and built up the image. To be honest I only ever think of stamped images in terms of one stamping and colouring it in.....very flat!! you make me think differently, that's one of the things I love about your blog. CoB
