Color Throwdown #73 with There She Goes Stamps

It's time for another Color Throwdown, and we're up to #73 today! This will be the last one for 2009... the team is taking a well-deserved break after this!

Our challenge today is being sponsored by There She Goes Clear Stamps! Stop by the Throwdown blog for all the details, including a prize for one random player!

I chose these colors for today based on the 'Tis the Season paper from Bo Bunny! It's a great combination for a fun Christmas card, but is also perfect for something playful like I've done today! I got to use the set You're So Punny from TSG for my card, and just love all the characters and sentiments available in this set. I know I'm going to get a lot of use out of it!
My little whale was colored with Copics, and popped up on foam tape for dimension. I also applied a thin layer of Glossy Accents to his body. I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch challenge #52 for my layout, turning the sketch on it's side to accomodate my image.

My Throwdown sisters have had some fun with their There She Goes stamps this week too, so be sure to stop at their blogs! And don't forget our December Guest Designer, Carol Longacre! Carol has rocked out some awesome designs this month, and I'm looking forward to seeing more of her entries for the Throwdown challenges in 2010!

Be watching for Color Throwdown #74 on the first Wednesday in January, which will be hosted by a new member of our team! She's one of my most favorite people in the world, and I'm so happy she's joined our team!

Happy stamping!

Tammy this is so adorable! I don't know how you manage it but you always seem to make these cartoon characters come to life! Love the dimension you gave your whale with your coloring and by popping him up! Mercy is right, you made the layout work perfectly with your card! LOVE how you added the curve of brads around part of the clever ;]
