Color Throwdown #232



Hello everyone!!!! It's my turn to host this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge and I have picked some soft, pretty colors for you to play with!!!  Spring is just around the corner so this color palette has me in the mood for flowers and birds. I have another sneak peek today using Sweet 'n Sassy's new stamp set called Nature Silhouettes...it's just perfect for a touch of Spring design!!!



Markers were used to add color to the flower silhouette stamp; pool Party, Barely Banana, Calypso Coral, and Certainly Celery. The bird silhouette stamp was first stamped with Crumb Cake and then the edges were rolled on a Chocolate Chip ink pad before it was stamped on a scrap piece of white card stock. The coordinating die was used to cut it out and it was popped up with foam dots. The background paper from Prima was distressed and sewn along the edges, a scallop chipboard sticker from Teresa Collins  was added along with the twine and button to finish it off.

Be sure to add CTD232 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
