Color Throwdown #194



Good morning everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!!
The fabulous and oh sooo talented Bar is our hostess this week and she has picked some gorgeous, soft beachy colors for us to play with!!
  

I used the I Spy #17 sketch and some fish, shell, and sea foliage stamps from Rubbernecker. The fish were colored with copics and the waves were made with a MFT's Die-namics. The sentiment is from Rubbernecker's Floral Silhouettes #467. 

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Love to Create Blog Challenge - add a sentiment
2. Paper Playtime - Friendship with a sentiment
3. Fashionista Challenge - simply summer

Be sure to add CTD194 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!

I'm really looking forward to your Color Throwdown creations these days, Joan, you always work with those colours so nicely.

Love how you've kept the stronger red for the fish, it's a lovely spot of colour amongst the cooler shades. coB
