Guesting for Color Throwdown!!

Hey friends!!  So excited because today I'm guesting with the fabulous gals at one of my favorite challenges Color Throwdown!!   You are going to love the yummy color palette that was chosen for you by this week's Color Throwdown hostess, Lisa (and you just might be craving some ice cream, too, lol!)!!!  The generic colors are plum, raspberry, peach and white.  You can add in some neutrals as well.   I combined the color combo with the June Reverse Confetti Sketch for You to Try.  I pulled out my RC Butterfly Dreams stamps and dies to create my card.  I used Altenew Coral Berry ink for the largest butterfly and PTI's Plum Pudding for the smaller ones.  Thanks to the mini MISTI I was able to get nice deep colors for all the butterflies.  The little wreaths were die cut from a peach cardstock (SU!'s Crisp Cantaloupe no long available) using the little wreath from the RC Wreaths Confetti Cuts set.  A strip of white cardstock was cut and all the elements were layered on.  To break up the white I added a mat of kraft cardstock to the strip and then embossed the front of the card base using a piece of burlap.   Finally a liberal brushing of clear Wink of Stella was added to the plum butterflies. I have included a close up shot to show you how much the butterflies sparkle.   Make sure you check out all the projects from the Color Throwdown design team!  Looking forward to seeing what you make with this week's colors!!  



Thanks for stopping by today...


Supplies:  Cardstock:  white, kraft, peach; Stamps and dies:  Reverse Confetti; Inks: Altenew and PTI
