Colour Throwdown #36

This is my submission for Color Throwdown #36. This one was a little tricky for me. I picked up the Stamper’s Sampler Take Ten magazine yesterday (yes, Cathy, you can look through it today – come on over). Jen del Muro has a layout and sample on page 22 and I thought I’d try that on for size. I struggled with my patterned paper choices a little, but I’m really happy with how this looks. I used a variety of patterned papers (4 of them), two of which are from the S-U Hostess package. My butterfly comes from Savvy Stamps. I used Versa Magic pigment inks (Pixie Dust, Rocket Red Gold and Pearlescent Rust) and stamped it on Very Vanilla. I then clear embossed and cut her out. I popped her on Turquoise patterned paper as well as Regal Rose and Tangerine Tango. The sentiment comes from the retired Best Yet stamp set. I wish they would bring this set back – it’s perfect to circle punch and layer. A few rhinestone brads and it’s done. It just kills me that it can take me over an hour to make one card! I guess you can’t rush art! I’d better think of someone special to give this to.

    Cathy! I miss my (very random) pop-ins to the Ink Spot! I am glad to see that you have a ‘home’ where I can continue to enjoy your fun, inkspired self and your creativity!
