Color Throwdown #205


Good morning everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!
It's my turn to hose the challenge...I found this beautiful cake on Pinterest and just had to use the colors for this weeks inspiration!!!  Remember, you don't have to use the exact colors...use what you have that comes close...we want everyone to have a chance to play!


My card features the adorable fish stamp from Rubbernecker called Luncheon Meet....it was stamped on white card stock that was colored by inking up a piece of masking tape with Pool Party and *stamping* it on the card stock. This process was repeated a few times to cover the entire background. The fish were stamped again, colored with Copics, cut out, and adheres with foam tape. The sentiment called Hangin Around is also from Rubbernecker and the button, twine, Stickles bubbles, and the diecut wave finish it off.


Be sure to add CTD205 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
