Color Throwdown #132



It's time for Color Throwdown #132 and this week Broni is our hostess with this cool color palette! We hope you'll be inspired to play along! Remember, if you don't have these exact colors, whatever you have that is similar is just fine!

I don't know why, but "duck" came to mind with these colors... maybe the two shades of blue made me think of water and the yellow a duck's bill? Whatever the case, I decided to pull out this adorable (and neglected!) cute duck stamp from Penny Black for my card. This poor guy hasn't seen ink in awhile, so using him for my card also works for the weekly challenge of my MINION Jessie with her Forgotten Stamp Friday challenge!
As you can see, the Labels 1 Nestabilities die cut is mounted on foam squares then I mounted the duck on some foam tape, and went further by mounting the bill, feet and one hand/wing on some more foam tape for some great dimension!
Stop and see what my Throwdown sisters have created for the challenge today... I know you're going to love their creations!
