Color Throwdown #25

This card is for the Color Throwdown Challenge #25. This week's colors were chosen by Tammy Hershberger: Certainly Celery, Pumpkin Pie, Baja Breeze, and Riding Hood Red. I used Jen del Muro's SFYTT for this past Saturday for my layout. For this card I decided to use a MFT set that I've had a while but from which I've only used a couple of stamps: Punny Farm.

My base card is Whisper White, with a layer of Certainly Celery, then a layer of Pumpkin Pie, then a layer of two designs of Basic Grey's Offbeat DP--this paper was PERFECT for this color combination. The focal image was stamped on watercolor paper and colored with markers and reinkers and my blender pen. I paper pieced That Girl's outfit with DP, matted it with Baja Breeze and Riding Hood Red, and popped it up on 3M foam squares. Some twill tape and antique copper brads follow the sketch on the left side of the focal image. The chicken was also watercolored, cut out with Nestabilities dies, matted on Riding Hood Red and is up on 3M foam squares. The sentiment was stamped on Whisper White, cut out with a Nestabilities label die, and is also popped up on foam squares. This was a really fun card to do! Good colors, a good sketch, and a good stamp set--a winning combination!
