It's Color Throwdown #51


This week's Color Throwdown is a special one! Challenge #51 is being sponsored by DRS. And if you check out the blog you will see there's a prize being offered!


I love the simplicity and country feel of this wreath and you can purchase it here. What was the real challenge, as it should be, was trying to get these colors to work with this image. I should have gone much softer-and I would have changed the shape around the image. Hindsight is 20/20. I used a Martha Stewart border punch to create the borders on the two mats under the image. The So Saffron mat I added texture to with my ScorPal. I tried to gussie it up a bit by adding some Sakura Stardust glitter pen to the berries, and others I added dots of Liquid Pearls in Lavender. I added some Kaiser gems above the scalloped border and the pin was a plain pearl head that I glued some beads on.

Make sure you check out the awesome cards produced by the DT below and play along to be in the running for a great prize package from our sponsor DRS Designs! Make sure you used keyword CTD51 if you upload to a public gallery. Have a great day!
