Color Throwdown #100!
***This is my second post for today. Scroll down if you'd like to see a get well card I posted earlier. Thanks!
Finally! I've photographed a card and uploaded it in time for a Color Throwdown challenge! Number 100, to be exact, which is a very big deal over on the challenge blog--take a look!
I inked up one of the goodies from PTI's June release, All About You Additions, for this card. I stamped the flowers on the nestie, and then again on Pure Poppy and Hibiscus Burst cardstocks, embossing with clear embossing powder and coloring with Copics. Then I cut out the flowers and popped them up to varying heights on foam. I colored clear rhinestones with the Copics to match and placed them as the flower centers. I sponged a little "ground" and "sky" on the nestie, and then layered it on some blocks of cardstock. I embossed the blue paper and then cut the edge with those old decorative scissors we all have lying around from the early days (or am I dating myself?--hee!). I stamped some Spring Moss dots down the side, and then attempted one of my first ribbon "treatments." It was meant to be . . . different . . . than it turned out, but I kind of like its funky vibe! I sewed down the middle first for some interest. I knew I'd need a small sentiment, so I went looking in that old standby, Paper Tray. It comes in handy!
