Color Throwdown #466

Happy Thursday!

This weeks Color Throwdown Challenge #466 colors are Plum, Olive and Rust. I'm a new stamper so I am using again the SSS Fractile Leaves stamp set. I wish I could find some Thanksgiving stamps but of well..leaves will do.

I first stamped in Versafine and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I then water colored with Distress Oxide inks. I used Peeled Paint, Seedless Preserves and Wild Honey. I also used some Barn Door Distress mixed with the Wild Honey to get the rusty color. I was a tad apprehensive since one oxide and one regular but it came out great.

After they dried I fussy cut them all out. I then took the seedless preserve ink and splattered it onto some Olive card stock.

I used the same Rust concoction to color some white cardstock to make the sentiment banner.
The sentiment comes from the SSS Ornate Leaves stamp set.

I popped it all onto a Kraft card base.

The inside sentiment is from the SSS essential greetings set.

Thank you for coming by and see you next time!
