Happy Wednesday, everyone! I am excited to be playing along with the Color Throwdown team today as a Guest Designer! Color Throwdown was my very first design team and I always had such a great time! Here is their color palette for this week:
These colors seemed masculine to me, but I wanted to go in a different direction, so I pulled out some older Authentique papers featuring this vintage image in navy, then went to work:
I added a Chocolate Chip frame, diecut with a new SU die called Radiating Stitches, positioned so that it framed the floral image.
I stamped a butterfly from Butterfly Basics, punched it out with the matching punch, and mounted it on a piece of Cajun Craze, also diecut with a circular Radiating Stitches die:
A Charming Sentiments sentiment was heat embossed with some white ink and powder, then diecut and added to the frame. Some twill ribbon and enamel dots finished it off.
Since I had the inside portion of the frame sitting on my desk, I used it for the inside, added a Night of Navy butterfly, a little sentiment and diecut heart:
I have a friend who is going to be having some surgery soon, so this will be in the mail to her!
I hope you'll play along with the CTD colors this week! Share them over at the CTD blog
! Thanks for visiting today--enjoy it and be blessed!
