Color Throwdown #115


Hey, hey! Did you think I forgot about the Color Throwdown today? Nah.... I was just way too sleepy by the time I finished my card last night so I'm posting this morning for your viewing pleasure (at least I hope it's a pleasure!)

Laura, the Lil' Inker herself is our hostess this week and when I first saw the colors I thought "what??????" But when I saw where she got her inspiration from and realized these are the colors in the Matilda paper from Cosmo Cricket, I knew I'd love creating for this week's challenge!

My cute little witch here is the Witch Eye Brew digital image from Chicken Girl Designs, and she only has eyes for YOU! Isn't she scary, stewing up her big black cauldron of eyeballs? LOL I LOVED giving her green skin! She is paired with the aforementioned Matilda paper and some other supplies from the i {heart} papers store including the Circle and Labels 3 Nestabilities, Copic markers, 3/4" purple crepe ribbon, and the natural twine string. Are you tired yet of seeing that awesome little Sentiment Flag die from Lil' Inker Designs? I sure hope not! I LOVE using it, and you will too! Head on over to the Lil' Inker store and get yourself one along with the matching stamp set! (one of these days.... when I have time LOL.... I'm going to show you how I computer-generate my sentiment and still manage to perfectly cut it out with the die even though I can't see through the die to line it up!)

I also used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch challenge #96 for the layout!
I hope you'll make some time to play along today or later in the week! The color combo might seem intimidating but stop on over at the Throwdown blog to be inspired! Or just visit my Throwdown sisters blogs!
