Hello to the 100th Color Throwdown!!

Can you believe there have been 100 Color Throwdown Challenges???! Me neither!

Well, to celebrate their 100th challenge they are having lots of prizes from lots of sponsors!!

Mark's Finest Papers is one of the sponsors and since I'm on Speedys' Friends DT I thought I'd join in the festivities! You will find the challenge and all the deets here.

The colors are rose, celery, red and blue. I water colored the holyhock, pierced the corners and drew dots around the edge of the card with my Micron 01 black pen. I sponged the edges with distress inks.

All the supplies for my card are available at Marks Finest Papers. The stamp set is Pears & Holyhocks.

See my post below for my 2nd card for the Color Throwdown!

Stamps: Pears & Holyhocks - Marks Finest Papers

Paper: Marks Finest Papers

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Ranger Distress Ink - Bundled Sage & Mustard Seed, Rose Red - SU
Accessories: Foam dimensionals, aqua pen waterbrush, paper piercer, charm & Ribbon - Marks Finest Papers, black micron pen, copic Y17
