Color Throwdown #66




LeAnne is our hostess this week for Color Throwdown #66. LeAnne likes to try to kill me by using blue all the time! ;) It's not necessarily my least favorite color, but it is a color I struggle to use. But that's what a challenge is, right? So here's what I came up with, using the Sketch for You to Try from Jen's blog.



I'm keeping this post short and sweet because it's late, I'm exhausted, and kinda' at my wit's end. Please be sure to stop by the Throwdown blog for all the challenge details, and visit the other designers' blogs for inspiration...


Many thanks to Lisa Kind for being our Guest Designer for October! It's been fun to have her share her designs, and get to know her better! Stay tuned for next month's Guest Designer! She's gonna' giddyup onto the Throwdown in a big way!

Happy stamping!









Stamps: Fall Trilogy (Rubbernecker)
Cardstock: blue (unknown), Rich Razzleberry, Elegant Eggplant, Confetti White (Stampin' Up!)
Inks: Bordering Blue, Elegant Eggplant (Stampin' Up!)
Accessories: ribbon (Stampin' Up!), Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder (ProvoCraft).

Beautiful way to use these branches, Tammy! I love the layering of the die cuts and the blue shading on the circle is just perfect!! Looks like LeAnne did you a favor on this one!!

Absolutely wonderful card. I think you did a great job using the colors. (Blue) is one of my favorite colors. Your card is so serene and peaceful.

Hey Tammy love this card and also the color combo. I love the card below ( Christmas tree), that is a really cool one. Hope you are well.
Back from Big Sky and my visit but as usual no winner in the men field. It must be me but then again maybe it's them. Pat

Gorgous, Tammy! Doesn't look to me like you had any trouble with that blue ;-) Love that leafy branch image and you rocked that sketch!
