Color Throwdown #360- Mad Props!!

Good Wednesday Morning and welcome to this week's colors at The Color Throwdown. Monika is back from a little break and brought us the colors this week.

There's purple... yes, I am working hard on getting over that :) The inspiration pic is gorgeous and I love these colors... I just struggle with purple... I know it's my problem!

You could create a gorgeous color washed background with these colors with a black silhouette image- not sure why I didn't think of that to begin with, but, here's my card....

I did practice some coloring with copics using this sweet Saturated Canary image called "Diane". The sentiment is from a fun Paper Smooches set called "Uplifters". There's a story behind the "mad props" sentiment- suffice it to say I didn't know the slang.. but, yes I DO know what a "hashtag" is for!!

Here's another angle showing the shaker part of the card...

My shaker cards in the past didn't cover such a large area so I got a little carried away with the gold beads:)

Visit the rest of the DT and our special guests this week for more inspiration...
