Color Throwdown #398

Hello, crafty friends.  Today, I am sharing a fun card I made following the color challenge at Color Throwdown.  Here's the challenge:
Some super fun, and bright summer colors for this weeks challenge.  The colors are stated as: red raspberry, hot pink, lime green and bright yellow.

Here's what I came up with using: Raspberry Ripple, Melon Mambo, Cucumber Crush and Daffodil Delight Stampin' UP! ink colors.

I started out by white washing a piece of Thick Whisper White Cardstock with Cucumber Crush and Daffodil Delight ink refills.  I then heat set it, and flicked (like my professional word?) Raspberry Ripple droplets randomly onto it.  I, then heat set it again.  I was then ready to stamp my images using Basic Black ink.  This is the Falling Flowers stamp set., and the sentiment is from the Love & Affection stamp set.

I then cut three of the largest flowers from the May Flowers Framelits in Raspberry Ripple, Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight cardstock and pieced them together.  Next, I added three leaves die cut in Cucumber Crush.  Sequins and Daffodil Delight Enamels finish it off.

The stamp set and framelits can be purchased as a bundle to save 10%!  See page 127 of the annual catalog for more information.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Happy Stamping!
