What happens on Vacation...

Welcome to this weeks Color Throwdown #52 which is being generously sponsored by Clear & Simple Stamps! Barbara is this weeks hostess and has chosen Perfect Plum, Certainly Celery, and Chocolate Chip for the color combo...don't they sound yummy?!

I used the stamp set Jet Setter Darling to make this fun card. It's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black on Neenah Solar Crest White Ultra Smooth and colored with Copics. I stamped small images of sunglasses, jet planes, and a suitcase in Wisteria chalk ink from Colorbox all over the plum panel and then affixed it to the striped paper from My Minds Eye with these fun flop flop brads I picked up really cheap at Michaels last year (or the year before?). I then stamped around the outside of the panel with some additional sentiments and more jets. I also added some flower shaped gems from Kaiser on her bag and a couple round ones to the main sentiment. I used Copics to dye the plain paper Prima flowers and used brads and a button to finish them off. I also sponged a bit of Wisteria around the main image panel.

Play along with us this week and you could have the chance not only to be chosen as our featured stamper and be in the running for our September Guest Designer spot, but also to win a fab prize from Clear and Simple Stamps!
