The Color Throwdown Challenge # 109

Happy Sunday Everyone!

One of the reasons I started doing challenges, particularly colour challenges, is because they give you a chance to use colours that you would normally not put together. Sometimes this is a good thing but quite often they are almost too challenging.
When I first saw this swatch from The Color Throwdown girls I thought, WOW, nice bright colours, can`t go wrong. I actually struggled a bit. It would have been perfect if I had lots of cute stamps but as I haven`t I`ve had to go back to one of my new favourites.
This is what I came up with.

The backing paper is Pink Petticoat Dots in pistachio.
I really need a large scallop punch but as I haven`t got one I used a Glitter Girls score board for my scalloped edge and cut it out with scissors. Not the neatest edge in the world, sorry.
I then used my medium sized Chrysanthemum stamps from Waltzing Mouse ( again) and stamped them in the other colours, hot pink, bright blue and bright yellow. Then cut each one out with a nestie circle die.
The sentiment is by Flourishes Tag Lines and also stamped in hot pink and cut out with a circle die.

Back soon with another post. Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
