Fun Color Combinations

It is so fun to give an online challenge a try. For this card I used the Color Thowndown combo.  
 This was a combination that was such a fun challenge.  I don't use gray often so I had to scramble for products that were gray.  
 I used an acrylic block and inked it with orange, stamping it directly to a piece of Tim Holtz's watercolor paper.  I then inked it again with gray and stamped that too.  The leaf sprig is a stamp from Paper Source, the cut doily is a die from My Favorite Things, the flower dies are from Memory Box and the sentiment is from My Favorite Things.  
 Here is the Color Throwdown combo. 
 For this card I used the Colour Q combo.  Another combination that was pretty cool to use and part of what it even more fun was that text print was part of the combo.  
 The ray stamp is from Neat and Tangled.  I inked it with Distress Stains that were spritzed with water and then stamped.  I glued a page from an old dictionary to white cardstock and then cut out the Paper Smooches die word.  The leaf stamp and die are from Lawn Fawn.  
Here is the Colour Q combo.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
