Hey everyone! For the first time in what feels like forever I'm a teeny bit ahead of the game and not posting this AFTER the Color Throwdown Challenge has gone up :P. Progress!
OK here's this week's challenge:
To see what the rest of the team created plus if you want to play along check out the CTD blog post HERE <---click!
And here's what I made:
The colors and "back to school" theme of this challenge got me thinking and I remembered I had this Get Down to Business stamp set from My Favorite Things that would be PERFECT for this.
I started out intending to only make one card (the one on the left) but ended up making 2 because as I was contemplating how I was going to make the first card the idea for the second card started brewing so I decided to make both.
I stamped all the images with Versafine Onyx Black ink onto Canson XL watercolour paper and used my Peerless watercolours to messily color them in.
All the sentiments are from the same Get Down to Business stamp set, and I stamped them onto various card stock with SSS Clear Ink and heat embossed them with detail white embossing powder.
I went nuts with the splatter on the inside of the cards (it was fun), then added sentiments and that was it!
To see how these cards came together check out my video below:

I get asked a lot about where to purchase the supplies I use in my videos and blog posts. I list all the supplies I use at the end of my posts (below) or in the description box directly below my video on YouTube. If the product images have sets of letters below the image it means there's more than one place it can be purchased. SSS = Simon Says Stamp, AZ = Amazon, MFT = My Favorite Things etc. Compensated affiliate links used when possible at no extra cost to you. Affiliate linking is what keeps my blog and YouTube channel up and running and enables me to work from home with my kids! I appreciate your support more than words can say!
Items marked with an asterisk (*) have been sent by a store/manufacturer (with no obligation on my part to use/review - I only use and share what I personally love). Everything else I purchase myself!
