Color Throwdown Challenge



I was talking to my friend Kisa again (you say her name like Lisa, but with a K), and she was telling me about this cool blog called Color Throwdown. Have you heard of it? I don't have much computer time, so I miss a lot of cool stuff apparently. I had to go and check it out. She was right... it's very cool! I decided to play along... even though those colors were indeed a challenge for me!

I used the stamp set Children of the World drawn by my friend Joni. I was telling her that I couldn't even draw stick people and so she made this cute kids for us.

My favorite part of the card is the star on the litle boy's shirt. I colored it, then went over the top with my atyou Spica Pen, then covered it with Clear Sakura Glaze. It stands out and shines like crazy. You just gotta touch it.

Supplies:

Stamps: Children of the World (Our Craft Lounge)
Paper: My Mind's Eye (Just Dreamy2), Tempting Turquoise, Eggplant Envy, Neenah White.
Ink: Memeto Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers, Craft Whisper White.
Other: Sakura Glaze, atyou Spica, Large and Small Star Punches (SU!), Long Rectangle Nesties, Cuttlebug, Scor-pal, Jody's Foam Dots, May Arts Ribbon.

Hope you have a great weekend... if you have some time to stamp, why don't you try the Color Throwdown Challenge? I can't wait to see what the colors are for next week.

Thanks for stopping by!
