Color Throwdown # 48

I just love the colours for this week's Color Throwdown # 48. Cathy chose a fantastic combo of colours and, thankfully, I had them all. Here's my card.



I'm in love with this Rachelle Ann Miller stamp and these colours are perfect for this image called "Giving Shelter". I used Kraft for the base. The first layer is Pink Pirouette which has been run through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots embossing folder. Next, I embossed and cut two pieces, one in Baja Breeze and the smaller piece on the DP with clouds. I used the Nestabilities Labels 2 for these bits. I stamped the image onto the clouds paper and coloured it with Copics. Here's my tip for the day: keep a scrap of the paper your image is on to test out the Copics, especially if the paper is very thin because the colours will change dramatically as they dry. I mounted the image onto the Baja Breeze c/s and attached it to the Pink Pirouette piece with brads from Basic Grey "Two Scoops" line. The sentiment was computer-generated using the CK Becky font. The flowers were from my stash and I used a button and some ribbon for the centre. All in all, I'm pleased with the outcome and I hope you like it too! Thanks Color Throwdown team for another great combo!
