Good morning y’all!  Wow I can hardly believe this is my last post as Guest Designer for The Color Throwdown and the month of September is coming to an end.

All I can say is that I’ve had so much fun playing along with this fabulous group of designers and have been so inspired by the colors each week.  Thank you so much for having me join you for the month!

For my last project, I did a really quick card  . . . and by really quick . . . I mean really quick.  I ran out of time yesterday afternoon and knowing that I had a meeting last night, I had all of a couple of hours to get the card made, photographed, cropped and emailed off.

I chose some MME Lost & Found paper that I thought matched the colors because I didn’t have any of the SU matching paper.


A small shipping tag was coordinated with coordinating paper for the background and the sentiment was trimmed out of another piece.  The flower, Bitty Blossom, was die cut/embossed from another sheet.  The seaming binding was some I had in a stash jar, that I believe was dyed with Rusty Hinge.

That’s all for me today.  Thanks for stopping by and remember . . . life is short, make the most of the adventures that come your way today!

Wow this past week has flown by and here I am, already into my third week of The Color Throwdown for the month.   This week’s colors are some of my favorite . . .

CTD210 swatch

Here’s my project for the week, using an image from Hampton Art, Hydrangea Collage.  It was stamped in Archival Coffee on hot press watercolor paper and water colored with a light wash of Bermuda Bay Ink.


The butterfly was water colored with Wild Honey, the stem in Shabby Shutters and a light wash of Antique Linen was applied to the background.   Based on the square around the image, I knew I wanted to die cut around some of the petals.


I trimmed in around the petals out to the edge of the border, and inserted the paper in the Spellbinders™ Square Die with the trimmed area on the outside of the die.  The edges of the image panel were then sponged with Antique Linen, hitting the shaded areas a little darker than the rest.  The panels behind the image are Certainly Celery, Bermuda Bay and Chocolate Chip.

Heck I even died my seam binding Bermuda Bay to match the ink and paper.

That’s all for me today . . . I’m off to finish up a Halloween project for Quietfire (which you’ll get to see tomorrow)!
