TUESDAY THROWDOWN CHALLENGE


Tuesday Throwdown challenge this week is your favorite color combo. Our sponsor Stitchy Bear have generously supplied us with so great images. I chose this beautiful parrot. My most favorite colors are purples and greens so have used it but also added a little teal in for the parrot. I water colored my image and then cut out with a Spellbinder scalloped oval.The print is paper pizzaz and solids are Bazzill. Stickles was added to the parrot and dots on the fleur de lis.
The sentiment was punched with a SU oval and little fleur de lis added to each side. The ribbon was hand dyed and a little flower added to the center. You really need to stop by and see the rest of the teams Great cards. Such a fun challenge so why not stop by and show us your favorite colors!
