Color Throwdown Wednesday with Starving Artistamps

Hey, it's Color Throwdown #78 and this week is being sponsored by Starving Artistamps. Our hostess this week is Broni and check out the cool colors she's given us:



The images I used are Sprunk and the hydrant from the Doodle Factory Urban set and a sentiment. I created a city scene with them. The bricks were the closest thing to pink I could get using these images.



I started by making a brick wall. I cut a small rectangle shape from a foam pad used for making you own ink pad and inked it up with chalk ink and stamped it on white paper. I also stamped Sprunk on white paper and cut him out and popped him up. I added a simple panel of Soft Sky and on it adhered the hydrant which I stamped and cut out of red paper. After I stamped the sentiment it still looked really plain so I added a brad that looks like a screw in the corner...uh, yeah, that did the trick. Well, it's for a 7 year old boys birthday, so I don't think he will think it's too plain.

Come join us on the Color Throwdown and play along for your chance to be our featured stamper. One person also has a chance to win a great prize from Starving Artistamps. Don't forget to check out all the great design team samples! Happy Wednesday!

LOL! Without really looking or reading, I saw the skunk and the spray can and thought immediately that it was about being stinky! LOL It's almost 2 in the morning, and I'm a little punchy. Your brick wall is awesome. Great idea! Best, Curt
