It's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge (and I'm on time for once!! Woop Woop!!). Check out the CTD blog post HERE <----click! for all the info and to see what the rest of the team created with these colors!
Here's what I created:
Since the inspiration pic is so "back to school" themed to me I pulled out several of Simon Says Stamp's newer products to create my card as they were PERFECT (or puurrrrfect I suppose.....) for this challenge.
I stamped the cat (love his glasses!!) onto Distress Watercolour paper with SSS Intense Black Ink then coloured him in with several Distress Inks and a water brush.
The background was stamped with SSS's Stitched Alphabet set using Green Apple Ink on Green Apple card stock (check out the video to see how EASY it was to stamp that).
The sentiment was a combo of the Script Thanks wafer die and Thank You Teacher stamp set - love that they're the same font so they go together perfectly.
On the inside of the card I stamped another sentiment from the Thank You Teacher stamp set (one of my favourites - it's so true), added a strip of patterned paper and the second cat I'd stamped and coloured in and that was it!
To see how this card 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 Favourite Things, SnS = Scrap N Stamp (Canada) 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!
I occasionally receive product for free from stores/manufacturer with no obligation on my part to use/review - I only use and share what I personally love. Everything else I purchase myself!
