It's that time of the week! Color Throwdown time!!! This week Kristin has chosen some gorgeous colors! I LOVE Rose Red and I've never met a green I didn't like. AND I happen to have just gotten some Pear Pizazz paper, so I'm a happy camper!
I chose to use my brand new Year of Flowers: Gladiolus set from PTI for my card today. This image is pretty large and is VERY striking, so I kept my design simple to give it center stage.
I stamped the image on a Perfect Paper Panel (temporarily out of stock) from MFT with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic markers. Then I added some shading with a yellow Prismacolor pencil. I matted it with Basic Black and popped it up on the Pear Pizazz layer with foam tape, then added the sentiment and some black flat-backed pearls.
Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD107 so we can see your beauty all in one place. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week!
