Color Throwdown 143

Wednesday, May 25, 2011

This week is my last week as guest designer at the Color Throwdown.  I've had a lot of fun over the last few weeks taking a peek into so many blogs and seeing so many amazing and inspiring cards. 

Each week, the Color Throwdown gives us a color challenge that may be out of our comfort zone, may challenge us to think outside the box, or may encourage us to think of colors in a whole new way.  And that, my friends, is exactly what a color challenge is all about!  So please, put aside your color fears and give this color challenge a try.  I guarantee that you won't regret it and will find yourself on an amazing colorful journey!

So, that being said, on to this weeks color challenge!

How's that for a fabby color challenge?  To me, this challenge is all about summery, colorful flowers!

Since I can't seem to stop, I made most of my flowers using the faux mother-of-pearl technique.  I sponged some Rose Red onto my prepared glossy card stock, then stamped the floral image in Rose Red classic ink before I remembered that Stazon works better on the glossy card stock.  A little heat setting from my hair dryer and I'm good to go!  Maybe Stazon is not such a necessity, after all!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you have a chance to drop by the Color Throwdown and show us what you've got!   And don't forget to check out design team's creations for loads of inspiration!
