Color Throwdown 136

Wednesday, April 6, 2011

The colors for the Color Throwdown challenge this week are very soft.  And the more I looked at them, the more I liked them.

And it was nice to use Soft Sky again.  I even found some old designer paper called Afternoon Tea that had a pretty pattern in Soft Sky.

I started out trying to follow the sketch challenge at Splitcoast, but almost right away I veered off course and did something different.  I happened to find a card on my desk that I had made a while back that had a scallop border I made from circles like this.  I thought it looked pretty good, so I decided to try that again.  It's fun and gives the card a sort of light an airy look.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today!

The orange contrasts beautifully with the Soft Sky and I love the way you did the scallops. Is that the Fine Flourish background stamp I spot, adding interest to the butterfly? Looks great!

That scalloped edge is so pretty and the subtle detail on that butterfly just adds to its beauty!
