Color Throwdown #43


I missed playing some CTD's recently, and I really need to get back in the groove. Broni Holcombe is hosting the CTD this week to use lavender lace, old olive, and elegant eggplant. I have no lavender lace cardstock or inks, but I do have pale plum, so that's what I used today. I used the Kitchen Sink Honey Bunny set for the floral images using pale plum, perfect plum, and eggplant inks. The stems were made with a paper cutter, and the leaves are from a Sizzix die. I used the weathered background stamp and embossed it with eggplant ep for the bottom panel. The scalloped borders were made with an EK border punch, and the tab punch was used for the sentiment. I sponged pale plum around the main panel.
Thanks for a great challenge from the CTD team again............I really enjoyed this color combo!
Have a great Wednesday everyone!
