It’s time for another Throwdown!

This week Color Throwdown challenge #95 is being hosted by LeAnne! She picked this vibrant fun color combo that was inspired by a t-shirt.

I used butterflies from the PTI set Butterfly Dreams and colored them with Copics, each one to coordinate with this weeks colors. I just love how the black really makes these bright colors jump off the page! I used all scraps of card stock that were similar to the SU colors and matted everything on black. I stamped the sentiment with Color Box white pigment ink and embossed with Detail White ep. Then I used my inkssentials white gel pen to make flight trails. Oh, and the inside of each pair of wings is accented with Diamond Stickles.

Please welcome our June Guest Designer Wanda Cullen and we also welcome a new DT member Laura Pryor. Woo hoo to both of these awesome talented ladies!

Fly on over to the Color Throwdown and join us this week. We love to see your creations! Have a great day!
