Wednesday’s Color Throwdown

Welcome to another Color Throwdown! I hope today’s color palette will warm you up a bit! It was so cold here on Monday that I had a fire in the fireplace and the oven on just about all day…I couldn’t get my drafty little house warm for nothin’! I love my drafty little house, really I do, but dang it was cold!

I used stamps from Eat Cake Graphics to create this cute scene. I used Sweet Sunday Sketch #91 for this…

My color inspiration was Marjolaine by Basic Grey. I love this paper! I stamped the Porch with light, kinda tilted like mine, then added the kitty called Fluffy has more to say, on the porch. I just love his expression! I stamped Fluffy again and cut him out and popped him up. The house and Fluffy are colored with Copics and the shading around Fluffy is Prismacolor pencils. The glow from the porch light and evening shade around the image was done with various Memento Dew Drop chalk inks. I went over the porch light with a clear Glaze pen to make it look like glass.

I punched few flowers and leaves and added them behind the sentiment, which is from Savvy Stamps (are they still around?) that I cut with a Spellbinders tag die and secured with couple of brads.

If you haven’t checked out Eat Cake Graphics yet you need to get to the website and see all the fun and whimsical images-the scene’s you can create are endless!

I hope you join us over at the Color Throwdown this week. Please stop by and say hi to all of the design team ladies! Have a great Wednesday!
