Color Throwdown #63 with Unity Stamps


Welcome to another Color Throwdown! This weeks colors are brought to us by Cathy and being sponsored by Unity Stamps. You have a chance to win a great prize package from Unity so make sure you join us and play along


I used the stamp set Birdie Inspiration from Unity Stamps. I stamped the flourish in VersaMark Thatched Straw and Spanish Olive on Kraft paper. The sentiment is stamped in VersaFine Sepia. The gorgeous crocheted flower is handmade by Kristin Bueter! I have more that I am hording! The center and under the sentiment are flat backed pearls from Prima. The acorns were made with a squeeze punch from Fiskars. It cuts the top and bottom separately making it easy to mix and match different papers. I can't wait to use this on more projects! I used some fine line Sharpies to add cross hatch lines to the tops. The sentiment and some flourishes were embellished with a Sakura stardust gel pen and the ribbon is the last from my stash.

Make sure you head over to the blog to see all the great DT samples and play along to win some great Unity products!

OMG!!!! Danielle, I could not WAIT to get to your blog today! I sneaked a peek at the CTD this morning at work and I saw that flower and thought...OH MY GOSH...did she use MY flower?! I couldn't wait to find out...so imagine my delight to see that it IS the flower I sent you!! I LOVE how you used it with this card and that brown pearl rhinestone is perfect for the center!! Those are currently my favorite pearls right now...I can't get enough of them!

Your card is stunning! Love the distressing you did to the layers behind the main panel and that elegant flourish stamp on the base card! The contrast is fabulous!!!
