2012 Color Throwdown!

It’s a new year and a make over for the Color Throwdown!  Our wonderful hostess this week is also our new graphics designer…yay Barbara
swatch 173
These bold colors are a perfect way to start the new year.  I used Sizzix dies from Tim Holtz Alterations, Weathered Clock and Tattered Banners.

I began die cutting the clock out of gray paper and sponged with Distress Ink in Black Soot.  The hands are black with white pigment ink sponged on the edges.  The banner is white cardstock sponged with more Black Soot and folded on the sides.  The red cardstock was stamped with images and sentiments from Moments in Time by Flourishes using VersaMark ink.   I finished it very simply with some black self adhesive gems from Kaiser. 
The design team has fabulous samples to share today so head on over to the Color Throwdown for inspiration and to join in with this weeks challenge!
Happy New Year!!
