Color Throwdown #72 with My Favorite Things


Here's another Color Throwdown for you! Can you handle it? I'm sure you can! We've got some cool Christmas colors for you today, inspired by the Basic Grey paper Eskimo Kisses! Broni picked a winning combination this week, and we're all using stamps from one of my favorite companies, My Favorite Things!

I chose to use the Pure Innocence Flurry of Love stamp set for my card today, and used the Sweet Sunday sketch #47 from Karen Giron's blog. My sentiment is from another MFT set called Sassy Sayings. I don't see it on their website, though so maybe it's sold out.
I colored my image with Copic markers, then masked the main image and airbrushed the blue background. I used a white gel pen to color in the snowflakes after airbrushing, and I applied some Polar White Flower Soft to the pom-pom on her hat and the cuffs of her boots.
Stop and see what my Throwdown sisters have created for today, and please join us! My Favorite Things is offering a $15 gift certificate to one lucky participant!
