Color Throwdown Challenge #189



Good morning everyone!!! It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!! Kristin is the hostess this week and she has picked some beautiful, bright, happy colors...I never would have thought to put these colors together but I really love how they look!!!


I went a little wild on the yellow and red...a little brighter than the swatch but that's ok...remember,  just use what you have as long as the colors are close. The sweet little fairy from The Cat's Meow's Butterfly Kisses set was stamped with Night of Navy ink and then colored over with a navy colored copic. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Birthday basics and sewing and distressing was done around the edges of Basic Grey's PB and J dp. The red bloomers and pearl flourish finish it off.

Be sure to add CTD189 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!! 


This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Let's Ink it Up - distressing
3. Card Crafter's Circle - in stitches
4. The Stamp Man Challenge - shabby chic
5. Crafty Ribbon Challenge - things with wings
