Hello friends! I have a card and video to share with y'all for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge:

You can check out what the rest of the team created with these colors HERE <-------click! and you can play along if you'd like!

Here's what I made:

I pulled out my Simon Says Stamp Thankful Flowers stamp set (it's an oldie-but-goodie favorite of mine) and stamped the floral image onto Arches Cold Pressed watercolor paper with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink. The florals were watercolored with my Mijello Mission Gold watercolor palette and once dry cut out with the coordinating wafer die.

I was inspired by a recent card Debby Hughes posted when I created this mixed-media background. I stamped Simon's Thank You Text Background onto another piece of watercolor paper with Fossil ink. I added watercolor and splatter and crackle paste and even used a couple of Distress Crayons. 

For the sentiment I die cut some gold paper from Tonic's Gold Hearted 6x6 pack with Simon's Bold Thanks wafer die, and gold heat embossed a sentiment from the Thankful Flowers set onto black card stock.

On the inside of the card I stamped the Thank You Text Background with Fossil ink, then stamped the floral and sentiment from the Thankful Flowers set with Cracked Pistachio and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide inks. I stamped the floral onto the envelope with the same Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide ink and that was it!
