Woot Woot- Color Throwdown!!

Another Happy Wednesday morn'!! I've been keeping a secret-- WOOT WOOT!! Exciting News!! Today is the first day for me as a DT member for THE Color Throwdown!! Yes, I'm thrilled I tell ya!! Joining me is the fabulous Melody Rupple from A Paper Melody {we're newbies together}!!

And, here's the fabulous colors that Bar chose for use this week...


Aren't those colors wonderful and the beach in the background.... makes me happy!!
 
Here's my card...


I haven't watercolored any images in forever so, when I saw Bar's colors and the jars- I decided I wanted to use this Flourishes image and practice a little watercoloring. Stamped the image in crumbcake and heat embossed with clear. Colored the images with and then shaded with SU pastel chalk. Finally purchased Lil Inkers stitched rectangles {yeah, I know, I'm probably one of the few who just got these}. Sentiment is from Verve's Wordy Birds.

For more inspiration, you'll want to stop by and visit the other team members' blogs as well as our talented August guestie - Kendra Wietstock, Kendra's Card Company!

Remember, if you don't have the exact colors, use whatever you have that's close...the color police won't come after you--this is all about having fun!  If you upload to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD254.  Also, when linking up your card using the linky tool at the bottom of the post, please link to your specific post, not a generic link to your blog. 
 
When you are finished with your creation, head over to the Color Throwdown blog to add your entry to the Inlinkz tool.  Can't wait to see what you create! 

Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!
