Color Throwdown Challenge # 349 - You Lift Me Up!!

Good Morning on this bright and beautiful Wednesday morn'!! I'm a little giddy as we have finally cooled off a little around these parts- 60's in the morning and 80's/low 90's high for the day. We have been dealing with 80's in the mornings and 90's/100 lately!! The air conditioner has been working overtime (and worried it would break down)!!

Today our colors were chosen by the talented Jodi....

Love this combo!!

I worked on my watercoloring skills :) This sweet WPlus9 giraffe (Party Animal and matching dies) was stamped with SU Tip Top Taupe and heat embossed with clear onto TH watercolor paper. I watercolored with SU Crumbcake and Tip Top Taupe. The balloon was watercolored with SU Tangelo Twist and once dry the sentiment was stamped. Watercolored the background with SU Baja Breeze- let it dry and then stamped some Bokeh Dots from Ellen Hutson Essentials by Julie Ebersole and heat embossed with white. Added some wood enamel dots and clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
