Color Throwdown #55

Better late than never they say!!!!





Yesterday was a busy day and the colors for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge had my brain in a whirl ... so after much thinking and pondering, I finally came up with a design. What do you think??? Kraft is my LEAST-favorite color
/cs to use so I used it as my base card and created with the other colors.





My main image is by RubberCottage.com ... the sentiment is by Rosebud Rubber Stamps and the dragonfly comes from the Stampin' Up "Infinite Goodness" set. I stamped the image onto Whisper White cs with Versafine black ink then clear embossed. I sponged over the image using More Mustard and Summer Sun inks then wiped with a clean cloth. The flowers were colored in with American Crafts gel pens. (click for larger view)




Details:
Stamps: SU Infinite Goodness, Rosebud Rubber Stamps, RubberCottage.com
Papers: Kraft, Black, White, Melon Mombo, Crushed Curry
Inks: Versafine Black, More Mustard, Summer Sun
Accessories: Martha Stewart picket fence border punch, SU Melon Mombo grosgrain ribbon, Detail Clear ep, Kaiser mini pearls, sponges, American Crafts gel pens, swivel craft knife.

I think it came out great. I don't ever work with kraft paper but apparently it's very popular these days
