Color Throwdown #102


Hey all! It's time for another Color Throwdown and this week LeAnne is our hostess! She's decided that since it's been so freaky-deaky hot out that we'd work with some cool colors this week! Stop by the Throwdown blog for all the details, and to use the Inlinkz widget to link your own creation!

For my card, I decided to go to outer space with this cute Blast Off! image from Chicken Girl Designs! The layout of my card comes from the Taylored Expressions sketch challenge #121.
My photography skills leave a lot to be desired, so you can probably just barely tell that there is some Perfect Pearl shimmer sprayed onto my "moon" and I added some sparkle to the rocket ship with a few Spica glitter pens. I colored the rocket ship, then popped it up a little from the outer space sky with some foam tape squares.

Stop and see what my Throwdown sisters have created this week to inspire you!
Makiko Jones, July Guest Designer

Thanks for stopping by, and happy stamping!
