Color Throwdown #495

Hello friends.  The colors for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge are so rich...Navy Blue, Burgundy, and Gold.

I could definitely handle a bedroom done in these rich and royal colors, however I went a little whimsical this week as I've seen several people use MFT's and Birdie Brown's Recipe For Happiness stamp set the past few weeks and I wanted to play with it again too!


For some reason the chef's in this stamp set always make me think of pizza and Italian food, and restaurants with brick walls, sooooooo.....  I started by using Merlot and Cobalt Blue Brusho's to create my background, and then when dry, I ran it through a brick embossing folder.


I used MFT's Peek-A-Boo rectangle die to make a frame over my brick background and then adhered my chef that I colored with Copics and fussy cut.  His buttons on his coat are Pale Gold Crystal Nuvo Drops.


My sentiment is also MFT and I stamped it using Delicata's Golden Glitz pigment ink...I love the shimmer this ink gives with out having to emboss it!

There are some FABULOUS cards from the DT to inspire you this week, so check them all out right HERE and then play along!

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
