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.

Don’t forget to visit the Color Throwdown Blog and the other Designers:

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

Thanks for stopping by!
