Color Throwdown Challenge #342

Hello everyone and welcome to this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge!!!! Monika is the hostess and what fun colors she picked for us to play with!!! I almost made a school themed card but changed my mind when I picked up a piece of watercolor paper. I know that sounds weird but I really wanted to do a little spattering. 

SU markers in the challenge colors of red, yellow, blue, and orange were used for the spatters...the large end of the markers were sprayed with water and holding them over the watercolor paper, I hit them against a pencil. The color spattered on the paper and my t-shirt...LOL!! 

The paper banners were cut from Doodlebug's Back to School papers and the hello diecut was cut with a Savvy die. The butterfly was punched with a Martha Stewart punch and the sequins finish it off. 

Remember, be sure to add CTD342 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!! Also, please use #ctd342 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites.

We went to Waco last night to see the Baylor University Women's Choir Festival featuring the MCC Women's Ensemble, 3 Baylor students sang solos,  and the combined Women's Choirs of 8 high schools in the Central Texas area. My granddaughter, Mackenzie, was one of the choir members selected to represent Temple High!!! It was a fabulous concert...these girls are the best of the best, for sure!!!

Max is taking a break....

Max is only 5 foot tall and they put her in the back row....she needed a box to stand on...LOL!!

Jones Concert Hall on the Baylor Campus is such a beautiful facility and the acoustics are amazing!!! The MCC Women's Ensemble of 10 students sang acapella and they sounded like a group of 50 or more...absolutely amazing!! 

Thanks for stopping by...have a great day!!!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who "paints" myself when I'm spraying or splattering - lol! This is such a great CAS design = fun and festive! I would have loved to hear that concert! So glad that your GD was honored to perform there!
