Wednesday’s Color Throwdown #185
This week our Color Throwdown hostess is the one and only Broni and she picked this really pretty color combo for us! I love the sweet pink bicycle and that floral wallpaper-such a pretty inspiration picture.
I picked up a couple of these Nellie Snellen images, this one called Flying Frog a few weeks ago. I’ve been so busy with samples and birthdays and sick kids (and hubby, hrmpf!) that I almost forgot that I had them. Could you imagine?! I mean, how stinkin’ cute is she!
I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Flourishes Classic White card stock and colored it with Copics. I shaded all around the image with Prismacolor pencils and oms. I used Crystal Effects on the wings on both the fairy and the frog and then sprinkled iridescent glitter onto it while still wet. I also used a Quickie Glue Pen and the same glitter to add sparkle to her dress ruffle and around her body and the wand. I used a yellow/green fine glitter on the star on the wand.
The patterned paper is from both MME Mabel and Basic Grey Marjolaine. I couldn’t find one pattern that had all the colors in it, but these together worked very nicely. I used some bright green silk ribbon and embellished with some buttons, some of which I added a pink gem on top of. The sentiment is from the Verve set Starlight, Starbright (which appears to be retired) and it’s stamped on a sentiment flag die cut from Lil’ Inker Designs.
I sponged around the edges of the image panel and sentiment flag with Key Lime Dew Drop ink from Versa Magic.
The team has beautiful samples share so make sure you visit each of them! And head on over to the Color Throwdown to get all the challenge details and join us this week! Have a great day!
