Birthday Love - Color Throwdown #643

~

Happy Wednesday, y'all!  I'm hosting the Color Throwdown this week and I've chosen some soft summer shades for us to play with.  I've always said my favorite color is "water", so a few watery hues were in order: Aqua, Ice Blue, and Pale Green.

I had created a few Gelli prints recently and wanted to use one of them for my background today.  I used Distress inks and a brayer to coat the gelli plate, picked up the color with cardstock, then reapplied inks through the Floating Leaves stencil before picking up the ink again with the cardstock.  Simple, but I love the result.

The real star here though is the Mod Floral die cut in stark white against the multi-hued blue background. Then I used a couple of the sentiments from Reverse Birthday sentiment strips, and scattered some sequins.

Please come on over to the CTD blog and play along with us!  Be sure to check here for tons of inspiration:
