It's Color Throwdown #68

Happy Wednesday! It's another Color Throwdown being sponsored this week by Simon Says Stamps! Broni is the hostess with the mostess and these funky colors:



Here I used an image and sentiment from the set You=Cherry on my Sundae.



It is stamped with Versa Fine Sepia and colored with Copics. The hot fudge is coated with Diamond Glaze and the cherry with red Stickles. I did a zig zag stitch around the background panel and used a rectangle nestie to mat the image on. I used an EK Success branch punch and after punching a green branch I removed all but the top leaves, then added a second one, branch only without leaves to create a double cherry stem. I then added a couple of buttons from PTI as my cherries. The ribbon and red button with twine are all also from PTI. The patterned paper is from the Nutmeg Mini Deck by Cosmo Cricket.

Head on over to the blog and check out all the DT's great samples and join in the fun! You have a chance to win a prize from Simon Says! Have a great day!
