Real Red Tempting Kiwi

Now, how's that for a title? ;-) I FINALLY got to play a Color Throwdown! I follow Tammy's blog, Stamp Happy and have vowed to do a Color Throwdown someday...well, the day has come! The Throwdown was to use Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, and Kiwi Kiss. I love color challenges, because they put colors together I'd never even consider combining. I combined Color Throwdown #50 (CTD50) with the Splitcoast Sketch Challenge for this week SC235 (nine small panels).

The Kraft is actually a bit darker IRL. The card is 4.25" square, scored on my Scor-Pal along the edges. The images are popped up on bits of dimensionals.

A fun and easy card to duplicate.

Supplies:
Paper - PTI Kraft, SU black, Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Kiwi Kiss
Accessories - Scor-Pal, Daisy, MS butterfly, 1-1/4" and 1" circles, bling - $1 bin at Michael's, dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by the Playground. Your comments are always appreciated!

Blessings and Happy Stamping!

You are so right: these colors look terrific together, and I love how you used them with this week's SCS sketch challenge! I love the beaded-body butterfly (say THAT five times real fast) in the center circle. Beautiful!
