Color Throwdown #62

Happy Hump Day! I am participating in a Color Throwdown Challenge for the first time. I had stumbled upon it last week, and I thought it was such a cool challenge blog! Each week, you need to create a project using the required set of colors. This week, you need to use Grey, Rust, Olive and Razzleberry. Perfect for Fall!

I have had this stamp for years. It’s from Stamps Happen (coincidentally, it isn’t Tonya’s shop!). I love to use it with all different color combinations. I used a grey cardstock from Prism for the card, and I colored in the stamped image (which I embossed) with my EK Watercolor Markers. I threw on a couple of Dew Drops and voila! It’s a simple enough card, but the image really makes a statement.

These markers blend so beautifully, as you can see from this close up. I decided not to color in the background completely, I think less is more in this case.

Inspired? Maybe you should check out Color Throwdown too! I will certainly be participating in this awesome challenge again!

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
