Wednesday’s Color Throwdown

swatch 169
Good morning everyone! I hope you are ready for today’s rockin’ color combo, brought to us by Lori who is hosting her first challenge with us today! I have lots of Christmas cards to make and these colors were just perfect for the image I chose, but would be great for any occasion!

I used this adorable Lili of the Valley image called Festive Little Robins. I stamped it on Flourishes Classic White card stock and colored it with Copic markers. I added the shading with Prismacolor pencils and odorless mineral spirits (oms). Then I sponged around the panel with a Versa Magic Dew Drop in Wheat. The patterned paper is from the Prima North Country pad. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the trim on the bottom of the red panel.
In the photo below you should be able to see the glitter I added with a Quickie Glue Pen. I embellished with some dark brown twine and a simple button, but now I think it looks kinda plain. Maybe I will add a little something something…maybe :)
