Color Throwdow Challenge #462 using SSS Fractile Leaves

Happy Thursday! 

Today’s post is for the Color Throwdown #462. 
The colors this week are Rust, Green, Orange and Blue. 

I used my Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolors for the background and the images. 

I wanted a messy watercolor background to be able to show off these 
Simon Says Stamp Fractile Leaves. It sort of reminds me like the leaves fell into a river. 

I hear embossed the leaves and sentiment with Ranger Princess Gold embossing powder. 

The Autumn Blessings sentiment comes from the SSS Ornate Leaves stamp set. 

I used the same embossing powder to make a matte to put the watercolor piece onto. 

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

Color Throwdown #461 featuring Crazy Dogs stamp set

Hey All,
It has been a while since my last post and I apologize. My MacBook Pro is causing me to go crazy cause the screen is not working. I am using a Windows laptop till I can try to fix it and I am just not used to it.
I do tech support for cellphones as my day job and have patience all day. When it comes to me and a computer....I have none!

Anywho... here is my submission for this weeks Color Throwdown #461.
The colors this week were Purple, Green, Yellow and Orange. Those colors scream Halloween to me.

I used a Simon Says Stamp Diamond Circles Stencil and ink blened with Distress Inks, I used Carved Pumpkin , Wilted Violet, Mustard Seed and Lucky Clover.

All of the Elements and Sentiment are from the Stampers Anonymous Crazy Dogs, Crazy Things and Crazy Talk Stamp Sets. I colored all the images with the same Distress Ink Color plus Black Soot.

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

MFT Chinese Takeout and Good Fortune Birthday Card

Welcome back!

I can now show this birthday card I made for my awesome disinter in laws birthday!

Oh man MFT just made such a great release when came out with this set and the Sushi date one back in March.
I even won a $25 voucher from MFT as part of the release  and of course I got those sets and dies.

I did not come up with this design but I was inspired by one of the inspiration cards on their site made by Debbie Olsen.
I just loved the layout she chose with the blue background. 

I used Distress Ink  in Tumbled Glass and blended onto some Bristol Smooth Cardstock.

I used Antique Linen and Tea Dye for the fortune cookies and
Hickory Smoke for the handle of the box. I also used Antique Linen for the chopsticks.

I stamped the Pagoda and Enjoy with Memento Dew Drop Ink in Lady bug form the Good Fortune stamp set. I  then heat embossed with clear embossing powder to make them shiny.

I used some patten paper in my stash as the background and popped onto a card base made from some Neenah 120lb card stock.

I used the Sushi Date stamp set for the sentiment and the soy sauce bottle which i colored using Spectrum Noir markers.

I stamped the same pagoda onto the envelope in the Lady Bug ink.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
