Color Throwdown #249

swatch 249
It’s time for another Color Throwdown, and this week Joan is our hostess with this great Patriotic color combo!  I think you’ll love working with these colors!
For my card, I decided to challenge myself to make something that wasn’t necessarily Patriotic, but still using these colors, of course.  So here’s my card…
CTD249
I used the new Multi-Step Sailboats stamps from Kitchen Sink Stamps for my card, giving it a nautical-theme using the CTD colors.  My boats were stamped with Memento Espresso Truffle, Teal Zeal and Summer Sky inks, and I added the water with some Copic markers.
Be sure to stop at the CTD blog for all the challenge details, AND to welcome our new Guest Designer for July!

AND be sure to check in with the Color Throwdown next week as we prepare to celebrate our FIFTH ANNIVERSARY!  There are over $400 worth of prizes being offered to random participants, and a GREAT color combo from Lori that I know you’re going to love!  Mark your calendar!
Happy stamping!
