Color Throwdown Challenge 505

Hi gang!  Nothing like creating a card with what you thought was this week's color scheme only to realize you have the wrong colors when you start typing up a blog post.  Yep.  That's me.  Back to creating I went!

All the details of how to play along in the Color Throwdown Challenge can be found HERE.  And here is the beautiful colors of the week! #ctd505

I'm just happy I caught it BEFORE I finished my post.  That's okay.  I really did want to play more in my craft room.

Here's my completed card.

Nothing overly complicated here at all.  I printed this lovely digital stamp from Gerda Steiner Designs.  It is called "Have a Beary Sweet Day" and can be found HERE.  I have loved her images for a long time.  I own several of her digital stamps and a few of her photopolymer sets.  If you haven't seen her work before you definitely need to check her out! #GSDDTCALL

Like I was saying, I printed the stamp out onto Bristol paper.   I picked out three Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers that matched closest to the challenge colors.  I would put on a little of the straight color and then spread it out with a water brush.  For the bear I used Dark Gray and pale pink for the snout area.  The sign is Pale Rose and the background is Persian Green.  Once it was dry, I went over the sign with a Nuvo glitter gloss marker.  I used a black marker and a ruler to trace around the background color to make it look more complete.  That's it.  Fairly quick and super simple.  Hope you like it!
