Color Throwdown #358
Hey friends, it’s time for another Color Throwdown, and this week the uber-sweet Jodi Collins is our hostess! She found this lovely bouquet for our color inspiration today…
Even though I’m never a big fan of blue, I DO love it paired with yellow! So this was right up my alley!
Here’s my card…
I have LONG been wanting the Wide Stripes background stamp from Simon Says Stamp, but it’s been out of stock. So I started thinking “what can I do… what can I do?” And I ended up taking a piece of white card stock and some masking tape, along with Daffodil dye ink from My Favorite Things, and created my own wide stripes background! After I sponged on my stripes, I die cut the panel with Blueprints 24. On a strip of vellum, I stamped the leaves from the Simon Says One with Nature stamp set in Blueberry dye ink from MFT, then I wrapped it around the striped panel. Using the Thanks 3x4 stamp set from Simon Says, I stamped with Versamark ink on a Blueberry card stock strip, then heat embossed with white detail embossing powder. I adhered that to the striped panel with some foam boosters over a silver thread bundle. The striped panel was then mounted to a Blueberry card stock panel, then to a Sweet Tooth card stock base, and a few enamel dots completed the design.
