Color Throwdown and Three Clover Design


At the last SU class I attended I ordered an assorted pack of each of the color families so that I would have every color I need to do color challenges and have colors that went together. I punched a 1 1/2 circle of each color, wrote the name of the color on each and put them in an envelope. I think this will help me with learning the colors.
This card is for Color Throwdown #52. The colors are Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip, and Perfect Plum. I also think this works for Three Clovers Design challenge #23. Their challenge was to use bling.
The stamps are from a SU set called Thoughts and Prayers. I cut three tags with my Cricut. The stamped image was done with a techniques that I learned at a Copic class. You color the stamp with your copic markers then sprayed the paper with colorless blender ink and stamp. I used Copic marker YG05, E37 and V17. The affect is a soft color. Next I attached plum colored flower rhinestones by Kaiser for the flowers. The ribbon is certainly celery and I used just a little SU DP on the tag. I am not sure the name of the DP paper. I really like this color combination. Let me know what you think.
