Color Throwdown #59 with All That Scraps!


This week our awesome sponsor is All That Scraps! The colors I have chosen are Close to Cocoa, Ruby Red, and Pumpkin Pie...nice and warm for these whimsical images! Our sponsor is generously offering a prize for one randomly chosen player this week-head on over to the CTD blog for details and to join in!

Today I am sharing with you Pippi, newly released imaged from All That Scraps.

Image is stamped on Neenah Solar Crest White Ultra Smooth cardstock and colored with Copics. I painted her pumpkin costume and wings with Shimmerz in matching colors and then added glitter to her wings and touches to her costume for extra sparkle! I used a large circle Nestability to cut out the main image and then sponged on some Versa Magic Mango Madness ink while it was still in the die. I did the same with the tag and fixed it with a sparkly brad. The sentiment is also from ATS. I then used the largest Blossom Nestability to cut out the orange mat behind her. The paper is from the new Papertrey patterned paper Autumn Abundance. There are narrow red stripes through this paper and it was a perfect match for this weeks color combo! The swiss dot sheer ribbon is from my stash and the twine and rustic buttons are from PTI.

Make sure you head over to the Color Throwdown to see all the wonderful designer samples and join us for fun and prizes every week! If you upload to a public gallery of an online stamping community please use keyword CTD59. Happy stamping and have a great day!

OMG Danielle! I laughed when I saw how similar our cards were :O) I don't know why, but it didn't occur to me that she was wearing a pumpkin costume until I read your post! DUH! LOL I'm slow sometimes :) Now I want to completely recolor my Pippi!!

Love how you sponged inside the nestie...I really need to buy those circle nesties so I can do the same! I also like the Close to Cocoa base...that looks so good with the orange!

Leslie Miller said...

Okay, I've had such a great time here today, Danielle! This is one adorable image! I'm inclined to want every stamp you use, but then I have to keep in mind that it's really your extreme talent and creativity that helps make them so desirable. Back to earth, now...
