Kitchen Sink Stamps - Color Throwdown

Happy Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday!  Thanks for stopping by, I hope you had a great weekend!  The weather was in the upper 40's this weekend, Spring is just around the corner and I can't wait!  I'm still playing catch up in my studio, after having to take some time off for my foot to heal.  I'm hoping I can get my shoe back on this week, as it was pretty funny to see me in the Grocery Store with DH's hiking boots on.

This week Kitchen Sink Stamps is the Sponsor for the Color Throwdown Challenge Blog!  Be sure to stop by their blog on Wednesday to read more details on how you can enter this weeks challenge for a chance to win a prize from Kitchen Sink Stamps!

I used the color challenge as an opportunity to create a card for my mom's birthday using the beautiful Multi Step Lilacs from Kitchen Sink Stamps.  Mom's an artsy type of person, so I thought the colors would work pefectly as a background instead of incorporating them into card stock panels.  I used the Reinker Splash Technique from a past TJNL using Melon Mambo, Marigold Morning and Bermuda Bay colors from this weeks challenge.

Melon Mambo was a great color choice for the Lilac (click photo to enlarge). The last color in the Color Throwdown Challenge is Wild Wasabi, I used that for the stem and leaves.  Wanting to fill in a bit of the white space, I stamped the sentiment from Ready 4 Any Holiday in Black Memento, and added the Butterfly from the 3 Step Hydrangea.

Be sure to stop back later this week, as I'll be posting samples with the new Multi Step Horseshoes and Shamrocks & Clovers sets.
