Colour Throwdown 100


Boy, two posts in one day!  Never thought it could be accomplished over the summer, that's for sure!  However, I could not pass up Colour Throwdown's 100th colour challenge celebration!  They have some wonderful prizes available to those who participate in this week's challenge!!  Worth staying up a bit late to get it done LOL!

Since I was playing with this cute Sweet 'n Sassy Snow Friends snow couple stamp earlier this week, I wanted to use them again.  I  coloured the scarf and hat with the Twinkling H2Os colours I could find that were the closest match to Baja Breeze and Regal Rose.  Then, I stamped the snowflake image from Stampin' Up's Festive Favorites in the background to fill in the focal image.  Though it is hard to see in the picture, I made sparkly snow and also sparkled the brim of his hat and her ear muff.   I wanted the heart they were holding to stick out a bit more so I covered it with Stickles.  The snowflakes are Regal Rose with a half pearl in them and the ribbon tied in the hat and scarf wonderfully.   Now I just have to keep my fingers crossed :)  

Have a great day and thanks for joining me for part of yours :)
