Wednesday’s Color Throwdown

swatch 106

I’m your hostess today over at the Color Throwdown and I have picked these warm colors in hopes that fall will be here soon!

My card today showcases the die Fanciful Flight from Tim Holtz.  I painted over the brown wing outline and body with Shimmerz in Sky Blue and added some flock and glitter to the body also.  I just couldn’t stop once I got started it seemed!  I used some Stamping Bella’s Dots in Chestnut to create a flight trail.  I used some Prima hydrangeas and a tiny rose in the corner along with a sentiment from the Butterfly Dreams set by Papertrey Ink

Join us over at the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us.  Please use keyword CTD106 if you upload to a public gallery.  Hope you enjoy these colors!  Have a great day!
