Color Throwdown #89


It's Wednesday again, chickies! Time for another Color Throwdown! This week LeAnne is the hostess and she's chosen colors inspired by the Wisteria paper from Basic Grey. Now, of course you don't have to have this paper to play along, and you don't even have to have these exact colors, either! Just use whatever you have that is similar and have fun! Try though, to stay with just these colors and a neutral! We don't want to see any rainbows! ;)

I decided to use some more of my Florals and Weeds stamps from Rubbernecker for my card, inking the stamps with Tombow markers. I cut out the image with a square Nestabilities, then inked the inside edges with Bordering Blue ink.
And speaking of Rubbernecker.... who's going to the Adventures in Stamping convention this weekend in Akron? I'll be working in the Rubbernecker booth all weekend, and I expect you to stop by and say HI!

My Color Throwdown sisters have some beautiful inspiration for you today with these colors, so be sure to visit their blogs and take a peek!
