Color Throwdown 534/ The Stamp Market Hi

Hi everyone,  Amy is  with us as this week's host. We welcome you to this week's Color Throwdown challenge! The colors we're using from the inspiration piece above are light blue, brown and orange

If you upload your creation to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD534, and please use #ctd534 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites.  Also, when linking up your card using the linky tool at the bottom of the post, please use a direct link to your specific post, not a generic link to your blog.  All of the rules are in the right sidebar, so check them out if you're unsure.  And no digital designs will be allowed - only digital images that are printed off and colored.   

I'm so excited I got to ink up my new stamps from The Stamp Market. They just released their March stamps, dies and gorgeous new papers (I didn't get to use those yet). I used the Confetti dots in my background with Baby Blue ink on Polar White card stock. 

Oh, that leaf's to die for! It's called Botanical Beauty and I am looking forward to working with it again very soon.  I also couldn't resist the fun scripty "hi" from the Scallop Frame Die. I cut it from Sand card stock and then sponged on some Espresso Distress ink. I struggled pulling in that brown color for the challenge, so I added it in minimally with the ink blending and some sequins. If you are having trouble using a color for a challenge, my tip is to go small with it. Use it sparingly, save it for an accent with an embellishment or a sentiment. It works for me. 

 I tucked in the orange for the challenge with the flowers from Dear Friend and the teeny little sentiment strip.
