CTD174 & FMS17

DSCF0570

I have neglected my dear friends at the Color Throwdown for way too long, and when I saw their color challenge this week, I knew I had to play:

I just love that they have inspiration images!  I also used the Freshly Made Sketches sketch #17:

FMS17

to make my thank you card:

I flipped the sketch so my Young Vermillion wasn’t looking off into space!  He was stamped on watercolor paper in Stazon, then colored (I am on a watercoloring kick lately) with an aquapainter  in Soft Suede and Daffodil Delight, then mounted with dimensionals on a piece of Soft Sky that I stamped with some images from French Foliage:

I actually stamped the bird on the Soft Sky panel as well so I didn’t have to cut out his little feet!!  Isn’t he sweet?  The River Rock card base is also stamped with the Weathered BG stamp. Thanks for visiting today!

This is what happens when you’re stamping and not watching your DGD in the next room:

Diapers everywhere!  Check out the guilty look!

  4. I love, love, love how you painted this bird and the whole layout! Ingenious way to keep from having to cut the feet out. I'll remember that. Your DGD is adorable. She looks like she's saying, "hey, who did this?"

  9. Gorgeous card and coloring. I've been wondering what to do with that stamp! Priceless "guilty" look!! Guilty, because of the room mess or because she needed a diaper?

  10. Oh this is a wonderful bird. You did an amazing job.
    Oh the picture of Cassidy is wonderful. Caught in the act. Did she say Pumpkin did it? Maybe she is ready to give them up.
