Wednesday Color Throwdown


I am hosting this weeks Color Throwdown and I have chosen some challenging colors for you! I pulled them from this gorgeous patterned paper from Fancy Pants Vintage Valentine collection.


My image is baby boy from Lili of the Valley. How cute is he?! They have some of the most adorable images! He's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on kraft paper and colored it with Prismacolor pencils and oms. The twine and buttons are both from PTI and the paper Fancy Pants.

Head on over to the Color Throwdown and join us for this weeks challenging colors! Check out what our awesome design team came up with!

Barbara Anders - Paper Pursuits

Broni Holcomb - Splashes of Watercolor

Tammy Hershberger - Stamp Happy
