Color Throwdown #359

Color Throwdown #359 cropped

It’s time for another Color Throwdown challenge, and this week Lori is our hostess!  I just LOVE the colors she chose… I think you’ll find endless possibilities with these colors!

I decided to lean towards a Fall-themed card and used my brand new Pure Innocence Thankful Friend stamp set from My Favorite Things (along with the matching Die-Namics die!)

Color Throwdown #359

I started out by creating a watercolor background using some Berrylicious, After Midnight and Tangy Orange dye inks.  I flicked on some additional dye inks in Kraft and Chocolate Brown, then set this aside to dry.  I colored the PI image with Copic markers, and used some of those same colors to color some strips of card stock, then die-cut the leaves.  I added the sentiment, and a few flags cut from Kraft card stock, and a piece of paper from the Dots & Stripes Neutral paper pack.  The watercolor card stock panel was mounted to a piece of After Midnight card stock, then mounted to a Kraft card stock base.

My Fall-themed card also qualifies to enter the current MarkerPOP challenge!
