Cards for Color Throwdown #213

Good morning Bloglanders

I hope you all had a marvellous weekend and that this week will only bring you joy, sunshine and smiles. Today I'm sharing two cards that I made for the Color Throwdown challenge of the week. Here they are:

And the inspiration:

I'm sure all of you know how I feel about stamping but then I read a post by Karen Grunberg where she said "Be who you are and keep it IMPERFECT".  This was the kick in the butt that I needed and boy did I enjoy my stamping!!  I'll be showing some more attempts during the week. I stamped in pink, green and pumpkin on watercolor paper and then brushed over the whole thing with water.  This gave it a weathered look. Once dry, I stamped the sentiment and some more elements in black. On the bottom one I did some sewing to finish it off but I totally forgot to do it on the first one. IMPERFECT ME!

The stamps are from MME and I've used my Jenny Bowlin ink pads.

Even my diary got some Pumpkin Pie:

I've got some vines growing on my "stoep" and their  flowers are everywhere.  Just look - it's like tiny, green snowflakes! I just love them.

Now, hop over to see the rest of the Color Throwdown entries and please come back tomorrow as I'll be sharing some more of my crafty ideas with you. Have a great day!
