Color Throwdown #52

Mornin'! It's another Color Throwdown Challenge and another sponsor week! This week our sponsor is Clear and Simple Stamps. You can read all about the company on the Throwdown Blog. AND, today it's my turn to be the hostess. The colors I chose for this week are: Perfect Plum, Certainly Celery, and Chocolate Chip.

The Clear and Simple stamp set I'm using is called Tea Time and it's a sweet, sweet set! I love that little tea pot and cup/saucer, and the sentiments are perfect! I stamped the images on patterned paper with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, paper pieced the tea pot and cup and saucer and added a little Copic marker in warm neutrals for some shading. Then I cut them out and popped them up on some Nestabilities cut/embossed circles. The sentiment was stamped in the same way and cut/embossed with a Spellbinders tag die. For embellishements I added some ribbon, Prima flowers, and a button from my stash. I tied the sentiment tag and button on with Perle cotton.

Now, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use Mr. Linky to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily.
