Mojo Color Throwdown Challenges


Just a super quick post tonight before we head out on our Fall Tour. I wanted to get in a Color Throwdown challenge this week. The girls from CTD have been SO supportive of the new Just Us Girls that I wanted to play with their challenge this week, too. I used this week's Mojo sketch and put together a card for an upcoming birthday.


I worked with PTI's Dark Chocolate, Gina K's Soft Sand and SU!'s Cool Caribbean (I was out of Aqua Mist so this is a wee bit darker in hue but still sort of aqua-ish) papers.

I won some fabulous Verve stamp sets in August and have not had a chance to play with some of them yet so I inked up the background stamp from Bountiful Backgrounds with Dark Chocolate and stamped it on the Soft Sand. Then I stamped the tea pot and cup from A Cup of Life set - paper pieced them with the Cool Caribbean. I used the CB Textile embossing folder for the Caribbean layer for some texture.


I inked up the polka dot BG from Verve's background set on the Sand layer then paper pieced the tea pot and cup with the Cool Caribbean.  Added some PTI ribbon, a layered set of Primas and added a cool brad in the center of the flower.

I included a close up so you can see the polka dots and paper piecing.

Thanks for looking - have a wonderful weekend. Don't forget to stop by the Just Us Girls blog for a brand new challenge tomorrow.
