Hi everyone! Today is my second week of being Guest Designer for the Color Throwdown challenge blog! I'm late posting this because I wasn't feeling well...I found out I have bursitis! Pray you never get this because it's very painful! Anyway, I did have my card done on Monday night, which is a first for me to have something done two days in advance! LOL! Anyway, here are the colors for this week.I KNEW I could handle this one! I just love chocolate and blue together! Today's sponser is Simon Says Stamp and they are offering a $20 gift certificate with free shipping! They also gave me the cutest animal images to work with called Zoo Animal Vacation. Here's what I did. I used the giraffe in the set because I really think they are an amazing animal! He's stamped in Chocolate Chip on the Sahara Sand cardstock and then colored with the Y00, Y000, and Y000 yellow copic markers. I also used B52 blue to accent his horns and tail. I added Star Dust stickles to them as well. The Chocolate Chip cardstock is the textured kind for more interest. I went through my extensive stash of dp and came up with SU's retired Urban Garden. The ribbon is actually River Rock, but it looks so much like Sahara Sand! The accents are also from Simon Says. I used the Mojo Monday sketch from this week as my starting point., but flipped it to accommodate my image.
So what do you think? Can you handle this color combo? If so, please link your direct post to Mr. Linky on the Color Throwdown blog and use the keyword CTD64 if you post to an online gallery.
Thanks for stopping in today! Tomorrow we have the new releases from Artful INKables and a blog hop to show them off! Please stop by again!
