Throwdown Wednesday

I can’t believe it’s Wednesday again, already! Time is really flying now…school starts in a week here. Summer’s last hurrah, hanging on to the 90’s as long as it can! I say, Goodbye!

swatch 108

Today for the Color Throwdown #108, Laura chose these lovely muted soft colors and I destroyed them, lol! I thought these colors would work great for my mummy, so I started coloring away. I was really getting into it, layering color after color until I thought she was just right. Then I found the perfect paper! After I put it all together I said “Wait! What were the colors this week again?” I strayed a bit from the original palette, but I still incorporated brown, kraft, and yellow. Adding the black and purple really pulled it away from the softness of the original colors. Oh well, that’s what happens when you get carried away!


This is Mitzi the Mummy from Kraftin Kimmie. Isn’t she cute? She’s colored up first with Copics then with Prismacolor Pencils and odorless mineral spirits. I dirtied up the edges with Distress Ink in Antique Linen to go with her dirty bandages. She paired perfectly with this piece of dp from the Eerie line by Basic Grey. The edge punch is EK Success and the bat punch from Martha Stewart.

Head on over to the Color Throwdown and check out all of the great sample this week and make sure you join the challenge!
