It’s Wednesday and that means Throwdown time!

Good morning and welcome to Color Throwdown #94! Today our challenge is being hosted by Kristin and sponsored by Chicken Girl Designs.

After I printed my digital image on Flourishes Classic White Card Stock I colored it with Copics. I used the Copic Blender pen to create designs in some of the solid portions such as polka dots on the pirates head scarf, swirls on the sail, and criss cross on the flag. That was fun! I used my Tangerine Tango and So Saffron like color to create a sunset behind my image which I cut out and tucked into the waves of my Soft Sky like color. I had issues with the sentiment that printed along with the image (okay, I accidentally cut it…) and so I hand wrote the sentiment and cut it out in a banner shape. I added texture to the sky panel with my Scor-pal and embossed card stock for the sun, It’s all mounted on a piece of Chocolate card stock and finished with some rustic twine and glitter in the waves.

Make sure you check out all the fantastic samples from the design team and head over to the Color Throwdown blog to play along!
