Card for Color Throwdown #90 and Isabella's Sketchbook


For the first time ever I have combined two challenges into one card. I have been playing for a while at The Color Throwdown . This week's challenge #90 was to use Barely Banana, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Pale Plum. I used some dp from Basic Grey -Eva to cut out the flower petals for my image that I found at the second site my card is for Isabella's challenge . She sells digital images, but this one is a freebie and you can pick it up now. I love her art work and will definitely be back. I printed the image twice, once on Gina K designs 120lb heavyweight card stock and again on the dp. I cut it out and layered the cut outs after coloring in with old olive and pale plum. I sponged barely banana over the entire image. I love how this came out and appreciate the colors and the image from my challenge sites. Hope you like!

This is wonderful! That color combo and beautiful DP work amazingly well with Isabella's image! I love the paper pieced flowers and the way you have 3-D'd them really brings them to life. So happy you discovered Isabella's and came to have fun with us this week. Looking forward to seeing another beautiful creation from you next week!
