It's Color Throwdown Wednesday

Wow, Wednesday comes fast! Here we go again...this weeks Color Throwdown colors chosen by Cathy...and they are lovely!



This adorable frog is from Penny Black...another wood mount I have had for a while. I am being better at pulling them out and using them recently. I seem to have all my unmounted and clear stamps at hand, in folders or cd cases at my fingertips so I don't tend to go off into my storage boxes for the mounted images much anymore. I have a very large and nice looking display shelf that I picked up when my favorite stamp store went out of business about 2 years ago. It is still sitting and waiting for hubs to finish my stamp room so it can once again become useful. I really can't wait to fill it with my wood mounted stamps. I LOVE looking at them!

Anyway, the image is stamped on Neenah solar crest white and colored with Copics. Eggplant cardstock is Prism and the turquoise is a scrap....closest I could get to tempting turquoise. The flowers and ribbon are from Michaels. I had bought some silk flowers a while ago and every now and then the color is just right and I pluck them off their stems for a card or project. I don't remember who makes the patterned paper...I have had it a long time. The gems in the center of each flower is turqoise to match the decorative strip and I tucked a little green sprig from a Martha Stewart punch behind them.

Please join us and show off your creations! And don't forget to check out the rest of the talent design team! Happy Wednesday!
