Direct to Paper Technique for Color Throwdown

I've been wanting to try out the direct to paper technique, which was a challenge thrown out at my crafty place, StampNation.  When I saw the color combination at Color Throwdown, I decided this would be my opportunity.

I used Avery Elle pigment ink for the technique, and I created a tag for a shaker card.

Hardest part was the placement of all the images and trying to find the perfect color for my sequins - easier said than done.
