Hey everyone! I'm late as usual for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge:
Here's what I came up with:
I had a really hard time getting decent photos of this card LOL. Between the shimmer/reflection of the watercolour and the shimmer of the envelope my camera was just NOT cooperating (and I'm clueless with pics - I pretty much point and shoot....).
I used the Penny Black Flower Cascade stamp and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder onto navy card stock. I then used my FineTec Pearlescent and Iridescent watercolour sets to color them all in - again photos don't do justice at allllll.
The sentiments are from the Mama Elephant Congrats All Around stamp set and Congrats die - the "on your engagement" stamp was PERFECT for this card IMO!
Really hard to see in the photo (it was one of those evenings) but I stamped the Flower Cascade image onto the inside of the card with Versamark ink for a tone-on-tone look (and so the inside wasn't totally blank - y'all know I have to finish the insides of all the cards!). The gold envelope from SSS I heat embossed the image with some blue embossing powder and that finished it all off!
To see how this card and envelope 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.
