Colour Throwdown Challenge

CT Throwdown is celebrating their 100th post on TODAY!!!!  Woohoo!!  Without further ado, here's today's CT Throwdown challenge colour combination;


My DH saw my card for today's challenge and said, 'Wow!  That's a little bright for you, isn't it?'   Yes siree, it is!  So, grab your sunglasses and feast your eyes on this;



I took this picture in the full on sunshine...  Jeepers!  Remind me not to do that again, and just get myself a photography light tent already!!!  My picture turned out a tad washed out.  Turned my deep blood red card stock a tad orange.  *Blech!*

I used  Sending Some Love by Chicken Girl Designs.  In honour of this challenge, I coloured a little baja breeze bird of happiness {giggle}.  The mailbox has some glossy accents on it and IRL looks like a fancy schmancy spiffy new country mailbox.  Love it!  I coloured my image with copic markers and that's about it.  I used Happy Day designer paper from SEI which had all the colours from today's challenge and gave me a basis for choosing co-ordinating copics. 

Enjoy your day!!!

stamps; sending some love (chicken girl designs by IHP)

It's very bright and cheerful! That SEI dp is so pretty! Beautiful colouring of the bird mailing a letter. I also like the interesting ribbon placement with the sentiment.

A friend of mine sent me this link the other day, as she knows I've been wanting a light tent. http://strobist.blogspot.com/2006/07/how-to-diy-10-macro-photo-studio.html

It looks like it will work, and it sure is cheap to create. Would be worth a shot, at least until we both break down and buy those tents!

BTW, the card may be bright, but I think it's adorable!
