Color Throwdown #74


Hey, Color Throwdown fans!Smiley from millan.net It's time for our first challenge of 2010! And to add to the excitement, we're introducing a new member of our team! We have long discussed adding an additional member to our team, and when the time came to get serious about picking someone, we knew no one would be a better fit than Kristin Bueter! So we're thrilled to have Kristin join our team, and host the first challenge today with these fabulous colors! (Plus she's one of my bestest friends!)Smiley from millan.net

And to add even more excitement, Kristin recently started designing digital papers for Lauren Meader at My Time Made Easy, and so Lauren is generously offering two prizes for some randomly chosen participants in this weeks challenge! Be sure to stop by the Throwdown blog for all the details. And be sure to refresh your memory and review the "Prize Eligibility Requirements" in the right hand sidebar!

Kristin provided all the Throwdown team members with her new digital papers this week to use for the challenge, and let me tell you.... they're fabulous! The colors are just delicious, and there's an awesome variety! The two collections of Pretty Printables that we used are called Fluttering-by and Shutt-erfly.

I decided to use this adorable Pure Innocence stamp set from My Favorite Things that I got as a Christmas gift from my wonderful friend Barbara Anders! She knows how much I LOVE this line of stamps, and made my Christmas quite bright with this sweet gift!
For the dress, I took the pink gingham paper from Kristin's Fluttering-by paper pack and reduced the size to make a tinier pattern! The rest of my image is colored with Copics.

Be sure to check out all my Throwdown Sisters creations by visiting their blogs, including our January Guest Designer, Deb Horst of Sendable Sentiments!


So c'mon and show us your stuff! Join in the challenge, link your creation using Mr. Linky on the Throwdown blog and have some fun!

Thanks for stopping by! Happy stamping!
