Color Throwdown #54

CTD54 swatch

Yippee!  It's my week for the Color Throwdown again and I challenged even myself this week!  Now, don't look at these colors and say "EWWW" !  It's a challenge, remember?!  My inspiration for these colors was Basic Grey's Ambrosia designer paper.  And Whimsy Stamps is our sponsor and we all had some cute images to use!  You can check out all the details about what's being given away this week on the CTD blog.  Remember, if you don't have these exact colors, use something close, and be sure to share your artwork on your blog or an online gallery (use keyword CTD54) and then link a DIRECT link to Mr Linky back at the CTD blog.  And this week, Sylvia Nelson begins her debut as our Guest Designer for August!

So on with the show:

Since my image was rather large, I made a 5 1/2" square card.  You can see the different Ambrosia papers on the panels and on her umbrella.  She is colored in with various markers and I hand-drew some flowers on her dress just for fun!  The raindrops are gold Geo Sparklers; the sentiment is from Simon Says, called Simply the Best. I used the 3-Heart punch from SU to punch some hearts from Basic Gray, Tangerine Tango and Blush Blossom and added a little piece of taffeta and some more sparklers.  On the inside, I cut out another pair of boots:

Oops, forgot to draw on the little loops!  Think anyone will notice?

 

 

 

Now lets see what the other designers came up with:

If you have a question about papers or ink, just shoot me an email!  TFL!  Hope you have time to play with us this week!
