Rockin' Tuesday Throwdown and Sherrod Sneak Peek

Lots of fun lined up for this week as today is not only the weekly Tuesday Throwdown from Sherrod Studio, but it also starts a few days of sneak peeks of new stamp sets being released by Sherrod Studio on Thursday!

Today's challenge is a color challenge and it's a doozy!

Yep, these are the colors we're working with this week and it was such a fun challenge - especially when combined with the new Rock and Roll set!

I lucked out by having a sheet of DP that had a lot of the colors (or pretty close) to our challenge colors. I added a little Cranberry and Goldrush (from Close To My Heart) and I stamped my images in Memento brown ink. Don't you love the guitar? I love all the swirls around it - just awesome! Plus the swirl in the corner and and the smaller music notes and swirls at the corners near the guitar - just love it all! And there's more in the set - a microphone, a drum set, lots of sayings....so many images to play with!

I kept the card pretty simple by letting all the great papers and images do the work. A little inking around the edges of the papers, outlining a little with a brown Spica pen and some gold colored sparkles and I was all done. The layout came from the Wishes book from Close To My Heart.

I hope you'll join in the fun and try our color challenge. When you do, be sure to link your artwork over at the Sherrod Studio blog so we can all check you out!  And be sure to stay tuned all week as I have another sneak peek for you tomorrow and a release day card on Thursday!

Have a great day - I am working on the later side today, having my mom over for dinner and then going to a Tastefully Simple party at my sister's this evening. Until next time - have a creative day!

Great card Mary. You were lucky to find pattern paper for this challenge. I didn't have anything remotely close.
