Color Throwdown #94

Today’s Color Throwdown Challenge is being sponsored by Kate at i {heart} papers, so I’m using a Chicken Girl Designs digital image that is available exclusively through IHP. cgd-ctd-5-26

CTDswatch 94These were a lot of colors to play with, but I think I made it work.

This adorable giraffe image is from the April digital release, and it’s colored with Copic markers (E25, E42, YR18, Y23, YG95, BG10) and cut out with oval Nestabilities. The sentiment is from the CGD photopolymer set Into the Forest. The patterned paper is from PTI Polka Dot Parade pad, and it has 3 of the colors in the challenge. I feel like I should have added something to the yellow panel, but nothing I could think of was working. Oh well.

The other thing that’s bother me is that I used a sketch challenge for this too, and I can’t remember for the life of me which one it was. The ONE time I just follow from my iPod Touch and don’t print it out, I completely lose the reference! The actual sketch used a circle instead of an oval, but otherwise I stayed true to the sketch. If anyone recognizes it, please let me know so I can give credit where it’s due.

Feel free to play along!
