Wednesday’s Color Throwdown
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 :)
So this image is cute, no? You like, yes? Would you like to win it? I have an extra up for grabs. I will pick a random winner from the comments on Friday. Not sure when, so comment any time up until you see a winner posted. It’s Black Friday you know, so I might be busy shopping!
Now, get yourself over to the Color Throwdown and check out today’s challenge. And for your viewing pleasure please visit each of the design team blogs below!
