Color Throwdown 426-hello

Hello Color Throwdown  fans! I get to be the hostess this week with our new color challenge, CTD426. I have gone with a  combo of Grey, Red, and Kraft. I just love the rustic feel of these colors in the inspiration photo, it's perfect for these winery days of January. Remember, we do use generic colors, and please feel free to add in neutrals as you wish!

One lucky participant will be randomly chosen to join us as Guest Star Stamper on Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2017 for Color Throwdown #428.  That person will be announced on Tuesday, January 31st.  Good luck and thanks for playing along!

Remember, if you upload your creations to a public gallery, please use keyword CTD426, and please use #CTD426 and #colorthrowdown on social media so that we can find your gorgeous creations!  When linking up your creation using the linky tool below, please be sure to link directly to your specific post, not just to your blog.  All of the "rules" are in the right sidebar, and you can always check there to be sure!

I had totally different plans for this challenge. Well, I spied the sweet little deer from the  Jolly Holiday set and I decided he needed some ink. I actually water colored him on to Cloud White card stock with some of my Zig Clean Color Brush markers. I then used the Jolly Holiday Confetti Cuts to cut him out. I couldn't resist mounting him onto a tag, one of my go-to things to do with RC Confetti Cuts. This time I used the Bar Tag Layer Confetti Cut and then stamped some of the trees from the Bearing Gifts stamp set

I stamped the sentiment from Figure of Speech in Salsa ink and then used the matching Figure of Speech Confetti Cuts to pop it out. I added a strip of Salsa card stock along the bottom and hit it with some of those darling dots from Edge Essentials
