Kissed With Teal Tango--Color Throwdown #14

This Color Throwdown Challenge took me a while. This week's colors are: Taken With Teal, Tangerine Tango, and Kiwi Kiss. Pretty colors, and I knew I wanted to use my new Dreams du Jour stamps, but other than that, I was stumped. So I tried several (OK, lots of) different paper combinations until I came up with this and I like it.

I started with a Whisper White card base. I stamped the images on Whisper White and watercolored the flowers and leaves on the main image after cutting/embossing it with a Nestabilities die. The corners were clipped with my corner punch and the edges were sponged with Taken With Teal. Then it was layered it with dimensionals on Taken With Teal which had been cut/embossed with a scalloped Nestabilities die. I layered a piece of Kiwi Kiss (love this color!!) on the card base and pierced a few holes at the top left corner. Then I added a piece of DSP from the Haiku collection and pierced a few holes in the two bottom corners. The sentiment/mat was also cut/embossed with Nestabilities and is up on dimensionals. An orange ribbon and some orange Dew Drop wannabes finish it off. I like it a lot. Thanks for visiting!
