Throwdown color challenge!

Today's Tuesday Throwdown is a color challenge! We're working with Barely Banana, Ruby Red, and Creamy Caramel (or if you prefer CTMH colors - Buttercup, Cranberry, and Brown Bag).








If you play along, you may be our featured stamper the following week so how about joining us? Just go to the Sherrod Studio blog to link to your creation!  Here's what I created:



















I decided to go for a somewhat nordic look - kinda like a ski sweater, dontcha think? The base is off white that was randomly stamped with a snowflake in Cranberry ink and then my favorite trees from the Christmas Greetings set from Sherrod Studio were also stamped in Cranberry and the trunks were added with Brown Bag. I cut this piece with a Deckle Nestabilities die and mounted it to a kraft piece of cardstock. I also stamped the O Christmas Tree saying (also from the set) in Cranberry onto a natural twill ribbon - added that across the bottom and a couple of buttons and you have a red and white Christmas greeting!

You're asking yourself - where is the Barely Banana?? If you look closely (or click the picture for a larger view) you will see little stars on the top of each tree.

So how about joining us?? Create your challenge card and link it up at the Sherrod Studio blog and we might just feature YOU next week!

Until next time, have a creative day!

Very pretty! I have never stamped on ribbon, a thing to try in the future for sure.
