Color Throwdown Challenge #100-Lots of Prizes!!!


Run, don't walk over to the Color Throwdown Blog and check out all the great prizes they are offering in celebration of their 100th challenge!


Clear & Simple Stamps was honored to be able to participate in this challenge and offer a $25 gift certificate to one lucky winner.  This is sure to be a popular challenge this week and I can't wait to see what everyone creates with these colors.

I picked one of my all time favorite sets from Clear & Simple Stamps for this challenge-Live Life.  I went for a watercolored look with my flowers using regal rose, real red and certainly celery markers on my stamp.  I sewed a straight red stitch at the top of the image and in between the image & the sentiment.  With the certainly celery strip of paper, I used my Wallflower stamp to stamp a background image to coordinate with the patterned paper (My Mind's Eye Bliss "Darling Daughter" Floral/Pink).

Hope you will hop on over to the Color Throwdown Blog and check out the challenge for the week and join in the fun and help them celebrate their 100th challenge!  Congrats Color Throwdown, thanks for continuing to challenge us with creative color combinations!

Card details:
Stamp Set: Life Life & Wallflower from Clear & Simple Stamps
Cardstock: Regal Rose, Real Red, A Blanc Check, Baja Breeze, My Mind's Eye Bliss "Darling Daughter" Floral/Pink 
Inks: same as above
Accessories: Janome sewing, white satin ribbon
