Color Throwdown : Sending Sunshine

 
Hello Crafters!
I'm back with another card for the Color Throwdown!
Man these girls know how to pick colors that keep me on my toes :)
This week it's Orange, Light Blue, Navy, and Kraft.
Remember last week when I said I ALMOST went with a nautical theme? The next day I received this graphic and knew I'd be going to the sea with it for sure. How does it inspire you?!



I went for a watercolored background using distress inks. I love the way it turned out. Plus, I totally mixed companies. Proud moment for me :) I use to get all weird about mixing them haha!

You can check it all out in the video below:





I hope you'll play along at the Color Throwdown! I'd love to see your creations in the gallery :)

Thanks for visiting!
