Color Throwdown and a Question by Christine Duffy!

The Color Throwdown challenge blog will be celebrating its 5th anniversary with its 250th challenge on Wednesday, July 10 and IHP will be donating a $25 gift certificate. Since I am on the i {heart} papers design team, I thought I would participate too!

Colors are equivalents of SU's Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Kraft, and So Saffron. SU! colors aren't required even though those are the color names that get used for challenges--just use what you have that's close to the challenge colors. 

Here's what I "threw down"



I used some Lifestyle Crafts Quickutz cutting dies to create the ocean waves. the kraft represents sand and well the rest is self explanatory!





Come join the fun at the Color Throwdown and win a GC to i {heart} papers



I am also entering this card in the July Paper Crafts July Gallery Challenge. The theme is nautical.


**Lastly: I got this comment on my blog and wanted to answer, but Christine Duffy, you didn't leave your email so I could write you back!! So hopefully you will read this!

"I just started following and so excited to see the wonderful things you do, please tell me what is the ink you used in stamping winterberries on PBB?"

Answer: I used Colorbox chalk ink in Chestnut Roan! Thanks for your kind words :)

  26. Love how you have a kraft base and the blue scalloped edges. It really gives a beach feel while still being beautifully CAS. The pink flowers add a very sweet pop of color as well. :)
