I Prayed for You Today {Color Throwdown #347}

I'm back with my last  project as June Guest Designer for the Color Throwdown Challenge. This week's challenge colors are blue, yellow and red.

I turned to my beloved Verve stamps this week, stamping the sailboat from the Learning to Sail set onto a tag cut with a die from the WPlus9 Timeless Tags 2 set. After coloring the image with Copic Markers I added a sentiment from the Faith Medley set and threaded blue and white bakers twine though the tag hole. I combined the tag with a Pebbles instant camera diecut which I backed with Lily Bee patterned paper. A scattering of enamel dots finished it up. I really embraced the white space with this one!

Products: Verve stamps, Lily Bee dp, Pebbles diecut, Doodlebug enamel dots, WPlus9 die, Copic Markers
Copics: Y0000, Y11, Y13, Y35, R22, R24, R29, B21, B23, B26

It's been a pleasure working on the Color Throwdown challenges for this month.
