Color Throwdown - A Note from the Heart

Hey everyone it's time for another Color Throwdown challenge and I am so excited to be guest designing for the whole month of January!

Here are this week's awesome colours chosen by Tammy,  - gray, yellow, orange and aqua.  Remember...this is all about having fun!  ... "neutrals" are free - woot! woot!  If you upload to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD325.

I decided to ink up my new friend from Reverse Confetti - Rocky Raccoon! and since I needed a sketch, and this month's SFYTT was available - I went for it!  Isn't he cute??!

I started with a background of Soft Stone checks from Papertrey Ink die cut with Spellbinders Pierced Rectangles - that I won! eek! from Chic and Savvy Crafters for the Hope You Can Cling to challenges over at Splitcoaststampers - lucky right?!…..and matched it up with Fancy Pants True Friend patterned papers.

I stamped and coloured him with copic markers and then restamped onto Fancy Pants pattern paper so that I could paper piece his sweet little outfit!

I die cut a Reverse Confetti Love Notes panel and the Chevron Pretty Panel and popped it up onto the background.  I added some orange hearts from Love Notes and then popped up Rocky Raccoon - along with a few enamel dots!

I die cut a flag and stamped the sentiment with SSS Malibu Blue Ink.  Then I tied some grey twine around the top and it was done!

You will find all the challenge details on the Color Throwdown Blog.
