Color Throwdown #61 with Gina K Designs


Welcome to another Color Throwdown! This week I am the hostess and I have chosen five colors for you to "handle!" You can use all five, or just select whatever you want from this combination! And remember, the Stampin' Up! color names are only meant as a guide. If you don't have these, just use whatever you have that is similar. Remember to place a direct link to your creation with Mr. Linky on the Throwdown blog and maybe you'll be chosen as the Featured Stamper, a Top 3 Finalist, or the lucky winner of the prize this week, being offered by Gina K Designs!

For my card, I turned to my new A Year of Leaves stamp set by Melanie Muenchinger. I just love these leaves! I stamped the leaves with Old Olive, Rose Red and More Mustard ink, then just did a light colorwash over each leaf with the ink and an aquapainter. Then I stippled the cardstock with some ink from my Chocolate Chip marker and my good ole' color spritzer tool!

The layout for my card comes from Mercy's Tuesday Sketch #40 for this week!
The inside... can't forget that!
