Wednesday’s Color Throwdown

swatch 190

Hey friends, welcome to Color Throwdown #190.  This week Lori is our hostess with the mostess and she picked this soothing color palette!

I went a bit brighter with my colors, but I still kept to the palette of turquoise, green, yellow, and gray.    I had printed this fun digi image called Snorkel Bunny from Tiddly Inks.  This image is just too much fun! 

I started by coloring the image with Copic markers.  I used light colors and basically base coated it with markers, then I deepened the colors with Prismacolor Pencils and oms.

I cut the image out using Spellbinders, the Classic Squares LG for the main image and then Postage Stamps for the yellow mat.  The paper is a scrap and I can’t remember whose it is.   I used a Fiskars wave border punch for the bottom and hand cut a banner for the sentiment which is from Underwater Sentiments from All That Scraps.

I used Marvy Liquid Applique and glitter on the whitecaps and Crystal Effects on the diving mask, which you can see in the close up below.
