Color Throwdown Challenge #193


Good morning everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!! The fabulous and uber talented Wanda is our hostess this week and she has picked some rich, bold, colors for us to create with!!! I was kinda nervous about this combo but once I started working with them, I fell in love!!!! 


My card features stamps from Our Craft Lounge's Swingin By set. All the cute little stamped images were colored with copics and the little owl was popped up with foam dots. The designer paper is from My Minds Eye Fine and Dandy and the dyed ribbon finishes it off.

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge - things with wings
2. Oldies But Goodies Challenge - things with wings....ribbon is over a year old
3. Tip Top Tuesday - dig out the old....my ribbon is over a year old
4. Ooh La La Creations - ribbon or twine


Be sure to add CTD193 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!

Carole of Brum said...

Wowwee joan it's fantastic! i often look at the colours for this challenge and wander how on earth they could work together, then I see your cards and see that actually they work brilliantly together. that magenta seems almost out of place in the sample, but on your card it looks amazing. I love how vibrant and 'alive' the whole card looks. CoB

Cheryl said...

Great job with the color challenge! I loved the colors for that week, but couldn't, for the life of me, come up with anything for it. Fantastic bow and I love the wavy edge to the orange paper. Awesome coloring, too, especially on that tree!
