Color Throwdown #214



Hello!  Isn't this a pretty inspiration picture?  I just love sunflowers.  Today, Avery and I learned about the myth of how sunflowers came to be.  It all started with a water goddess named Clytie who was in love with Apollo-the sun god.  She watched him for 9 days and couldn't take her eyes off of him to even eat or drink.  She was becoming very pale and thin, so the gods took pity on her and turned her into a sunflower LOL!  

Sorry, I digressed a little bit.  Our lovely hostess this week is Joan and this is what I came up with:


No sunflowers here!  I really wanted to color up this adorable super hero from Your Next Stamp called Super Hero Ethan.  I used a variety of dp from Cosmo Cricket The Boyfriend and Authentique Free Bird.  The layout is the Deconstructed Sketch #73.  

We hope you'll play along with us this week!  Just link your creations to the Color Throwdown Blog HERE and make sure you check out the rest of the fabulous DT projects while you're there!

Thank you so much for stopping by today and have a wonderful Wednesday!
