Welcome to another Color Throwdown hosted by me, Danielle! Here’s this weeks colors which were inspired by the DCWV Mat Stack called Mediterranean Cafe.

This week is being sponsored by Purple Onion Designs and Michele, the owner, is offering a prize package of assorted rubber stamps valued at $50! Purple Onion Designs offers a variety of wonderful rubber stamps from whimsical to Victorian. There’s something for everyone! Visit the Color Throwdown blog for all the details!


For my card I used the Late 1800's Script Background and the Vintage Butterfly Set.

The background panel was stamped on Flourishes Classic Ivory card stock in black. I stamped various sizes of the butterflies on all three colors of cardstock with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink and cut them out. They are all popped up on dimensional adhesives following the diagonal line in the patterned paper from Mediterranean Cafe by DCWV which I tore and applied over the script background. The entire back panel was sponged on the edges with VersaMagic chalk ink in Wheat.

All of the butterflies and the script background were sprayed with three different colors of Glimmer Mist: Chestnut Brown, Iridescent Gold, and Sugar Cookie. There’s a lovely sparkle and aging all over. I used a piece of lace and twine wrapped around it and finished with a button and leaf stick pin from Little Yellow Bicycle. This is really vivid and shimmery in real life!

Our designers have wonderful samples to share to make sure you pop over to each of their blogs. And don’t forget to enter your own over at the Color Throwdown to win a fabulous package from Purple Onion Designs!
