Color Throwdown #68


The Color Throwdown is being hosted by Broni this week, and she chose these beautiful brights for us to work with! And the challenge is being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp, so if you play along you could be randomly chosen to win some spending money at their store! One lucky participant will also be chosen as our Featured Stamper for the week!
Since Broni specified a dark neutral in this week's colors, I decided to use dark gray for these sweet elephants! This is a set exclusive to Simon Says Stamp called Elephant Love.

Check out what the other Throwdown designers have created this week for inspiration!


Thanks for stopping by, and happy stamping!
