Color Throwdown #100

Hello, everyone! I feel like I haven't posted in forever! Not sure that I like that feeling! Tonight I have a card that I made for COLOR THROWDOWN's 100th Color Challenge. I just found out about this site thanks to my sweet StampTV friend, Jennie, and when I saw the color combo (and all the prizes!!!) I just had to participate! Go here to see the challenge for yourself! The color challenge was to use Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, Real Red and Baja Blue in your project.

For my entry I chose to use some amazing stamps (and stencils) that I've recently become well acquainted with and love--Layers of Color! Their clear art stamps and stencils are just beautiful and so easy to work with (they're affordable, too!)! It seems like all I have to do is sit down, look at the stamps and inspiration comes!

So for tonight's card, I used Layers of Color art stencil "Botanical Swirl" and these clear art stamps sets: "Nature Walk" and "Backyard Birds." Before stenciling I painted the base of the card with one of my new favorite mediums with Tim Holtz's Distress Crackle Paint in "Peeled Paint." Thanks so much for looking everyone! :)

Hi Janice - this is just stunning! I love all of the detail you have added. This gorgeous scene just takes me to a lovely place, filled with flowers and birds - perhaps a Corner of the Garden of Eden! This is totally gorgeous - Janice you are making these images sing! Thanks for all of the inspiration and for sharing! Fabulous!! {{{hugs}}}
