Color Throwdown Week 5

Hi all! Welcome to week 5 of the Color Throwdown! It was my turn to pick the colors...so here they are! You likey?? I do! Hmm, maybe that's why I picked them!? Or maybe I picked them because they matched some paper I'd been wanting to use for a while! : ) My true color pick was for Marigold Morning, but since that is old news, I thought I'd better throw a more current color in the mix...so I went with So Safron (I used Marigold Morning cuz I have a couple pieces stashed away!).

The card.


I've loved this Inka stamp since the first time I saw it at Jacksonbelle Embellishments, but I didn't order right away. I kept asking myself..."Self? How many bird stamps does one girl need?" Obviously the answer is LOTS because it just so happened to land in my shopping cart as I was rushing like a crazy woman through the Inka aisles trying not to be sidetracked....I was only there to pick up one clear set (Winter Birds - ack! More birds!) and a bit of Shimmerz! To be honest, I didn't even know that I liked birds! The patterned paper is from Me and My Big Ideas, and I think I've had it for nearly 3 years! It was a small scrapbooking kit that was gifted to me. It came with stickers, rub-ons, paper, all sorts of goodies. The sentiment is a sticker from the package as well. I thought it went well with the Inka image! I was also thrilled to find that I actually had matching buttons! I stamped the image on white shimmery paper, colored it with Prismacolor pencils, and then I painted over the birds with a matching Shimmerz Glitter Paint. I used Pink and Sunflower. Then I added a bit of dots with my white gel pen - I even added it to the sticker. (I was going to link the products so you could see them for yourself, but JB isn't working right now - or blogger, not sure which - sorry.)

And is Shimmerz too!

Thanks for checking out the Throwdown today! I hope you play along - and be sure to link it up here!
