Color Throwdown #360

Happy Friday, all!  Today I am playing along with this weeks Color Throwdown challenge.  Here is the color swatch:

And here is the card I made:

I used a smooshing technique for this card.  I started by smashing my Picked Raspberry and Faded Jeans distress inks on a large, clean stamp block.  After spritzing with some water, I used a piece of acetate to pick up the color, then pressed the acetate to the card front.  After doing this a couple times, I picked up some of the color with a brush and flicked a bit of it on the card.  The feather die cut is from My Mind's Eye and the sentiment and banner are from Paper Smooches.  I added some white thread and enamel dots to finish it all off.

I am also adding this card to this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, where the theme is die crazy!  

That is all for today!  I'll be back soon with more creations!

Until then...
