Nature - CTD460

It's been forever since I've posted on my blog.  This card was done for the 460th Color Throw Down. The colors are blue, green, and white.  I colored my image with a blue and green marker and then misted it with water.  Very easy.  I used 2 SU images with it, done is black.  Clean and easy is the way I like most of my cards these days.  Thanks for looking, and have a great day!! :>)

CC622, SUO, Just For You

I am so in love with color challenges in case you can't tell by looking at my blog or my SCS gallery.  I thought these colors were a bit difficult but was surprised that I liked my card as well as I did.  The colors this week are watermelon wonder, mint macaroon, and night of navy.  Our dessert was to use designer paper.  I used the set Kind of Eclectic from SU as well as the Butterfly Basics set from SU.  I used a piece of SU dp as well.  The sentiment comes from Tiny Wishes SU.  Thanks for looking!!  :>)

CTD430 - Thinking of you leaves...

Another fun color throw down challenge.  I found a piece of dp that had some of the colors in it and decided to add some leaves.  I took the leaf image from the Kind of Eclectic set from SU.  I stamped the leaves in my colors - either pool party, pear pizzazz or early espresso.  I then carefully added gold acrylic paint or turquoise acrylic paint.  My sentiment comes from SU Tiny Wishes.  Thanks for looking.  Give these colors a try - it's fun!!

Lavender and Lace - Double "D' Challenge, Dar and Diane blog spot

This is for the challenge over at Double "D" or Dar and Diane's blog

The theme was to use lavender and lace.  The stamp that is popped up is from Penny Black.  I used 2 lace stamps but don't recall the companies they are from.  I used a doily and a sentiment that I also don't know where it came from.  All of these stamps are rubber stamps that I don't keep organized with their companies.  Sorry.  I'm not an organized person.  Thanks for looking though.  :>)

CTD429 - Thanks

This card is for the 429th color throw down challenge.  We were to use orange, teal, and black.  I love these bright dynamic colors together.  I used a Tim Holtz stencil and sponged sections with the colors.  I then used a thanks stamp.  Thanks for looking!!  :>)
