Two in One


This weeks Color Throwdown card also works for High Hopes challenge which is to doodle...now that I am about to post my card I realize that I should have used a HH image, oh well. I already had everything picked out and then doodled on it!

This weeks beautiful colors are brought to us by Broni. This is such a classic combo that works for so many different styles as you will see when you check out the rest of the design teams wonderful images!

The adorable Whipper Snapper turtle is colored with Copics and his shell accented with glitter and Ranger's Inkssentials White Gel pen. I used a Micro pen to doodle around the frame the image is matted on and also the flowers on the green cs. I added dots to the scallop with the white gel pen also. The lavender lace panel was stamped with a swiss dot background stamp in Color Box white pigment and embossed with clear ep. I also chalked lightly around the image to reduce the starkness of the white and soften the edges. Oh no, it's missing a bow! This is what happens when you wait until the last minute to do the challenge!

You can see some of the glitter in this closeup. Please visit the Color Throwdown and join us for challenge #43! Please use CTD43 as your keyword if you upload to a public forum. Don't forget to check out all the wonderful cards from the DT! Have a great day!
