Color Throwdown #83

DSCF7036

Watch out!  Tammy is our CTD hostess this week and she always has some awesome colors up her sleeve!  Today is no exception!  She’s challenged us with the bold, beautiful colors of Melon Mambo, Marigold Morning, Wild Wasabi and Bermuda Bay!

There is a sponsor at the CTD blog this week, so make sure you hop on over there to check out what’s going on!  Meanwhile, this is what I came up with:

DSCF7035 

If you were asleep before, you should be awake now!  This is one bright card, but I had fun making it!  All the sentiments and images are from Kitchen Sink Stamps; these images can be challenging to line up, but the final effect is worth the extra time----very realistic!  I wish you could see the glitter on these flowers—that makes them even more fun!  The word “spring” was stamped in Palette Noir and colored with a blender pen and inks.  Since I did not have any Marigold Morning ribbon, I substituted this year’s In Color, Crushed Curry---a pretty good match!

Now check out what the other CTD designers have come up with:

Very cheery! I love the sketch you used. Looking out my window right now it is foggy, rainy, dirty white snow and dark. Your card is just what I need to get started for the long day ahead.

Those could be hard colors to work with, but you have created an amazing card. The best way I can think to describe it is...Joyous.
