Color Throwdown #354

Color Throwdown #354 cropped

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!

Color Throwdown #354

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!
