Buzzin' By- Tuesday Throwdown

Hello!! Welcome back to another Tuesday Throwdown!! This week, Kim has given us a color challenge. The colors we were to use are Stampin' Up's Certainly Celery, Tempting Turquoise, Close to Cocoa and Very Vanilla. I didn't have any Close to Cocoa left so I cheated and used Soft Suede. It's pretty close. Here is the card I made using these challenge colors:


I used 3 different stamps from Sherrod Studio's Pond Friends set- the reeds, the flying dragonfly and the Buzzin' By sentiment. For the card base, I used Close to Cocoa (really Soft Suede). The layers are Certainly Celery, Tempting Turquoise and then a layer of Tempting Turquoise designer paper. I stamped the images onto Very Vanilla using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored using Certainly Celery, Tempting Turquoise and Bashful Blue SU markers. I sponged around the edges of the image panel using Close to Cocoa and a sponge. I then put just a smidgen of Diamond Stickles on the dragonflies' wings to give them a little sparkle. I also added a bit of ribbon- celery-colored 1" organdy ribbon and 1/2" vanilla sateen ribbon (both from Offray). I decided it still need a little "something", so I added 2 large celery-colored brads and 2 small turquoise-colored brads (from Recollections) in the upper left corner. I think it turned out cute and I think I'll send this to my brand new Senior friend, Miss Dorthea. I think she'll like it!

I hope that you check out the other design team members' blogs to see how they used this fabulous color combination. You can also play along if you'd like. Just create a card using the challenge colors and post it to the Sherrod Studio blog using Mr. Linky. We can't wait to see what you come up with!!!

I should be back on high-speed connection on Wednesday- woo hoo!! This dial-up is the pits! After Wednesday, I should be able to get back to posting more regularly. Thanks for hanging in there with me!! Hope you come back real soon!!
