Dream Big! {CTD376}

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week, yours truly is hosting!  I have thrown down pink, aqua, kraft and white for this week’s challenge, and would love you to play along!


I’ve used this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch, MOJO431, for the layout.  I knew I wanted to use one of the sweet elephants from the BB Adorable Elephants set, so I cut out this cutie, along with the flowers and butterflies, from X-Press It Blending Card using the BB Adorable Elephants Die-namics and then stamped them with Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.  I colored them with Copic Markers and then coated the butterlies using a Clear Wink of Stella Brush Marker

I popped up my elephant and her flowers onto a panel of Sweet Tooth Card Stock cut with the new Wonky Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics  and then added another circle, cut with the same dies, and stamped “DREAM BIG” using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.  I popped the circles up onto a panel of Kraft Card Stock cut with the Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics which I stamped using the new Circle Scribbles Background with Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink.  I added a strip of patterned paper from the Fresh Squeezed Chevron Paper Pack.   I added a mat to the main panel cut from Sweet Tooth Card Stock using Blueprints 2 Die-namics.
