Color Throwdown #446

Hello there!  I am excited to share that I have been asked to play along with the design team over at the Color Throwdown Challenge for the month of June!

A new challenge starts every Wednesday, and today kicks off Color Throwdown #446 - Green, Yellow and Coral!

For my card today, I pulled out some cute stamps from my Paper Smooches stash!  I started off by watercoloring a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock with Abandoned Coral and Mustard Seed distress inks.  I diecut the panel with the Lawn Fawn Small Dotted Rectangles Stackables dies.  I added a strip of patterned paper to the bottom of the panel, then stamped and colored a pineapple image from the Pineapple Crush stamp set.  I knew I wanted to use this sentiment from the Spreading Sunshine stamp set, so I had to give my pineapple a smile!  I stamped and cut the cheesy grin from the Sunny Side Up stamp set, which I believe has been retired.  I added glasses from the Pineapple 2 dies, and of course, googlie eyes!  I diecut some hearts from dark coral cardstock using the Tiny Hearts dies, and added some white gel pen accents before mounting the panel on a white card base using foam tape.

Be sure to visit the Color Throwdown blog for lots more inspiration from the design team, and for all of the challenge details!  I hope you will play along! :)
