Guest Bloggin' for the Color Throwdown

I absolutely love the Color Throwdown challenge and am uber excited to be guest designing for them; below is the picture/colors! It obviously screams 'back to school' but since I don't have any 'little ones' any more (granted, I'm ONLY 26 - you know this right?), I went with my next favorite thing - FLORALS. HA, I know, I know. :D Can't help myself!

The background was made using THIS stencil and Fossilized Amber Oxide ink; I used a light blending motion at the bottom and gradually added more ink towards the top. I had so much fun watercoloring these flowers! I embossed the flowers and leaves on watercolor paper and used distress inks to watercolor. Before completely dry, I added a super heavy spray of shimmer mist (you can really see the shimmer in the photo below). The sentiment is cut from MFT's sour apple card stock.

Look at all that shimmer - so gorgeous!
I covered the 'hello' in glossy accents, added a strip of black/white designer paper and adhered everything to the card base finishing it off with some PPP sequins.

Thanks for stopping by and thank you to the amazing ctd team for allowing me to play along. Have a great week friends!
