Color Throwdown Challenge #61

Happy Wednesday!! Happy Color Throwdown day! LOL Check out the amazing color palette that Tammy chose:

Awesome, right?!

This week
we're so lucky to have Gina K. Designs as our sponsor. I used the versatile "Are We There Yet" stamp set for my card:

I can think of 10 different occasions this year that I could have used this set for! I can't wait to try out the rest of the images!

On my card I used the watercoloring with markers technique. Oh and I promise I used all of the colors! See the mustard on the headlight and tail light of the scooter? :) It's there! I kind of cheated on the scooter...I don't have the Regal Rose marker so I used Rose Romance (along with Rose Red). To keep the white sections of the scooter, I watercolored using the ink from the Sahara Sand lid...I did the same for the shadow under the scooter. I used PTI's artichoke Bitty Box Basics on my base layer (it's very close in color to Olive), and I used about a hundred dimensionals! I think the rest is pretty self explanatory.


I used Jen Del Muro's SFYTT sketch for my layout. It's not to scale (as usual) but this is the general idea :)
Don't forget to check out the rest of the team's eye candy!


They are such a talented group of designers! I've really enjoyed creating alongside them this month!

Lovely card - I really like the scooter image - the colours you've used on it give the whole card a feel of "hippy biker chick" - or am I showing my age by saying that!
