Color Throwdown #351

Color Throwdown #351 cropped

The Color Throwdown team has another challenge for you this week, and Monika is our hostess!  The inspiration photo she chose actually had some sparkly animation to it, which we couldn’t make work in the color swatch this week, but if you look closely you can see.  So for this week, our colors are hot pink, purple and black with sparkle!

I saw this beautiful card about two weeks ago, and just fell in love with that Penny Black All Over Pattern background, so I just had to get it ordered from Simon Says Stamp

Color Throwdown #351

After stamping the All Over Pattern on watercolor card stock with Versamark, I embossed with white detail embossing powder.  Then I did some ink smooshing with Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves distress ink, and spritzed the whole thing with some Perfect Pearls for shimmer.  I added a strip of vellum, and a die-cut Thanks die from Simon Says Stamp, cut from silver glitter card stock.  A few silver sequins, and done!

Be sure to stop over at the Color Throwdown blog for all the challenge details, and visit my Throwdown sisters for more inspiration…
