Color Throwdown Challenge #381




Hello! This is my last post as guest designer for  The Color Throwdown Challenge for the month of February! 


Here are the gorgeous colors for this weeks challenge! I hope you'll play along with us!



Here's What I did with this lovely color combo!


I had to use these lovely flowers and that cute little Swirly die from Reverse Confetti again! I can't help but think of a grapevine wreath when I see it, so i cut it out with some kraft card stock to kind of give that impression. 


I added some shading to the leaves and the flowers with my Copic markers and added some tiny dots around as well. I finished it off by adding a few 4mm clear PPP sequins, and stamping the sentiment with kraft ink.


Stop by the Color Throwdown blog to play along with this lovely color scheme! And for more beautiful inspiration check out what all the other design team members have done!


Thanks so much for stopping by!

Kay :)

  3. Your floral wreath is simply stunning. The colors look amazing together and I think the use of the kraft color for the wreath, to mimic a grapevine wreath is inspired. I really like how you add detail and depth to your leaves with your pens. The smattering of dots is also very visually pleasing. Gorgeous work. You've done an amazing job as a guest designer for the color challenge. Thanks for the inspiration! Big hugs!! :)

  11. I couldn't say it any better than what Tracey said. This is so beautiful! I have tried the tiny dots but yours are perfect and I don't know how you make them so small. Just the right touch. Thanks so much for your comment today.
