Color Throwdown #354
Hello friends, and welcome to Wednesday! Otherwise known as Hump Day, otherwise known as the last day I have to work until Monday! Whooohooo, I took a few paid days off and created myself a 4-day weekend/stay-cation, and I can’t wait! At 5:00 p.m. today Eastern time, you will hear me holler! :)
But before I get carried away, let’s get to today’s Color Throwdown challenge! Wanda is our hostess today for challenge #354 and she’s got some pretty, earthy colors for you to try…
I stuck with the earthy-theme and used this cute gnome who’s totally diggin’ things!
The gnome is from the You Gnome Me Birdie Brown stamp set at My Favorite Things, and I used the Sweet Sunday Sketch #280 for the layout (GREAT sketch, don’t you think?) On the Peach Bellini card stock panel I stamped the BG Woodgrain background in Peach Bellini hybrid ink, and on the Berrylicious card stock strip I stamped the BG Diagonal Stripes background with Berrylicious hybrid ink. The gnome was stamped on watercolor card stock and I colored with my Zig Clean Color markers. I added a strip of grass that was die-cut with the Grassy Fields Die-Namics and a flag from Blueprints 12, both cut from Jellybean Green card stock. I embellished with a few enamel dots to complete the design.
Be sure to stop by the CTD blog for all the challenge details. Visit my Throwdown sisters for more inspiration, including my uber-talented friend Lindsay Amrhein who’s joining us this month as Guest Designer!
