Color Throwdown Challenge #447 using SSS Emma Background and Distress Watercoloring

Happy Thursday!

I couldn't make my card yesterday for the throw down since I went to  U-pik farm and picked a ton of veggies. I am not kidding I was washing, prepping and freezing all day long. 

I was so tickled on Monday because I was recognized for the card I made for Challenge #446.  
Who me? That just made me so excited and spurred me to keep doing these challenges!

The Color Throwdown Challenge #447 this week is Navy, Aqua, Light Blue and Kraft. 

I was a tad stumped this week but decided to go back to what I love and do some water coloring onto a embossed background. 

I white heat embossed the Simon Says Stamp Emma background onto some Bristol Smooth Card Stock.

I tried 3 times to do on water color paper and failed each time. I was careful to not use too much water on the Bristol and had no issues with pilling. 

I used quite a bit of distress colors to mix up the brown and the light blue. I used Faded Jeans, Peacock Feathers, Broken China, Twisted Citron, Vintage Photo and Brushed Corduroy.

I cut out the background using the MFT Blueprints 13 Die-namics rectangle stitched die.

The sentiment is the SSS Happy Birthday Die. I cut it out twice and added Glossy accents to add some dimension and shine. I finished up by using some sequins to add some sparkle. 

 Thank you so much for coming by and I will see you next time!
