Hello! {CTD349}

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown, and this week, I am the hostess!  I’ve thrown down white, kraft, turquoise and orange, and I would LOVE it you played along with us for CTD349!


I’ve been experimenting with my card photography, and think perhaps I’ve found a system I like. I would love to know what you think!  It’s always a learning experience for me!

I’ve used my new Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers on this card, and the more I use them, the more I LOVE them!  It’s been a while (since the MISTI actually), that I’ve been this excited about a non-MFT crafty purchase!  My MFT goodies always make me swoon! 

Seriously, I am SO happy with these flowers!  I cut them from Ranger Watercolor Paper using the LJD Circle Scribble Flowers Die-namics and then stamped them using LJD Circle Scribble Flowers using Versamark.  I then embossed them with White Detail Embossing Powder.  Using a Medium Waterbrush, I started laying on color using the Zig Clean Color Markers, working in each separate section of the flowers until they were complete.  I then did the same process for the leaves.  LOVE.

The main panel of Sweet Tooth Card Stock was cut with the Stripes Cover Up Die-namics, which I then used again to cut a panel of Kraft Card Stock, which I then inserted for the stripes.  I added a mat of Sweet Tooth Card Stock using Blueprints 2 Die-namics, which mats PERFECTLY.  I cut out “hello” from Summer Splash Prestige Card Stock using the Happy Hellos Die-namics, which I then coated with my Clear Wink of Stella Brush Marker.  I added a trio of enamel dots to finish off the card.
