Color Throwdown #50 - SU Ink Whachadoin' Wednesday


It's time for another Color Throwdown, and this week Broni is hosting the challenge! She chose some great bold and bright colors for summer! We hope you'll play along! Remember, you don't have to have these exact colors... they're just meant to be a reference. Use whatever you have that's similar and have fun! And remember to use CTD50 if you upload to an online gallery, and leave a direct link your creation back on the Throwdown blog using Mr. Linky so we can all see your card!
It's also Whachadoin' Wednesday on the SU Ink blog! This week's challenge is to use stripes in your creation, so I combined both of these challenges for my froggie card here!
Don't you just love that sentiment? I think it's too funny! I colored my froggie with my Copics, then colored another one, cut him out and mounted him over the first for extra dimension. His spots are colored with a yellow Spica glitter pen, and I sponged some green ink around the edges of the die-cut before removing it from the die. I also sanded the stripes on my Core'dinations cardstock!

Check out what the other Throwdown designers have created by visiting their blogs, and while you're visiting at Juliana's blog, be sure to wish her a HAPPY 40TH BIRTHDAY today!
