Color Throwdown #126


Hello Color Throwdown fans! We're back again this week with another fabulous color combo for you with Danielle as our hostess! She was inspired by the colors in the Marjolaine line of papers from Basic Grey, and I'm so glad she chose these! I have had some of this paper for forever, and this is the first I have used them. OMGosh, I don't think there is a single sheet that I don't LOVE!

And lucky for me, in today's mail was my most recent order from My Favorite Things which included this new Something's Fishy ala' mode! I was SO anxious for this one to arrive... that fish is just too cute! And I love the sentiments that come in this set, too. My fish is colored with Copics and I used my colorless blender to add some spots, sorta' like a fishy-skin. I also accented with just a few touches of a Sakura gelly roll glaze pen, thinking about how the gills on a fish can catch the light and be kind of sparkly, know what I mean?
The layout for my card is inspired by the Fan Club challenge on Splitcoaststampers this month. Inside the card I added one of the fun sentiments from the set, accented with a Little Open Scalloped border cut with Die-Namics.
Stop at the Throwdown blog for all the challenge details, and stop by the blogs of my Throwdown sisters for more inspiration!



Thanks for visiting!
