Color Throwdown #305

Color Throwdown #305 close-up by Tammy Hershberger
Hello friends!  It’s Wednesday again, and that means it’s time for another Color Throwdown challenge.  This week Lori is our hostess with some bold colors for you to try…
swatch 305
I ended up having to keep my card very simple, as the hubs and I were out of town all weekend and my mojo is missing!  So here’s my extremely clean-and-simple creation…
Color Throwdown #305 by Tammy Hershberger
I used the good ol’ Designer Labels 3 STAX cut from Sour Apple card stock,
and stamped with a birthday sentiment from Big Greetings in Factory Green hybrid ink, and also stamped with the BG Linen background in Grout Gray hybrid ink.  Then I cut out a couple of flags using the Fishtail Flags STAX with Bermuda Bay card stock, a Pierced Fishtail Flags STAX cut with Tangy Orange card stock, and a flag from Blueprints 13 cut from Steel Grey card stock.  On the Bermuda Bay flag I stamped the BG Diagonal Stripes background in Blu Raspberry hybrid ink, and on the Tangy Orange flag I stamped the BG Typewriter Text background in Tangy Orange hybrid ink.  The Sweet Tooth card stock background was embossed using the Diagonal Stripes stencil, and then cut out with Blueprints 13.  The base is Tangy Orange card stock.
Please stop by the CTD blog for all the challenge details, and visit my Throwdown sisters for more inspiration…

I love the effect that the stencil gives.......I might be behind the times here and had not thought of using stencils to emboss with. I will be looking at them in a new light now :) thanks for sharing love your card
