Color Throwdown #100
I recently discovered this Color Throwdown blog (thanks, Broni!!) and I decided I wanted to play along. The colors are fun and bright, and I just happened to have some leftover strips of these colors that would fit great with the Technostamper sketch this week. Serendipity, right?
The flower is a big chipboard piece from Hobby Lobby, and I didn't have the right color of paint to match any of the four colors. Hmmmmm..... I pulled out the Claudine Hellmuth Studio paints that I recently bought, and mixed some pink and red together. Would you believe it was a perfect match to the Regal Rose color??? Wow! While it was still wet, I sprinkled some Dazzling Diamonds glitter all over it and let it dry overnight. I love me some sparkle! :-)
The sentiment is from the Happy Birthday set over at QKR Stampede. This is such a versatile set - birthday, anniversary, Mother's Day, and Father's Day are covered just with this one set.
Enjoy your weekend!
