ColourQ 37 and a Big Flower!
Can I just tell you how happy I am I found the ColourQ challenge? Really happy! Arielle, the creative gal behind this blog, really knows how to find some fantastic inspiration for each of her color challenges. This week is no exception. Take a look at these yummy colors:
Like my Hero Arts flickr group friend, Heather Maria, I'm fascinated/in love with the Hero Arts Big Flower cling! The stamp is just so beautiful and there are so many different ways you can use it. I stamped the flower in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Vintage Cream cardstock and then sponged the flower with SU!'s Cameo Coral and Ruby Red inks. Both these colors are being retired by SU! and I'm pretty bummed as I really like both. But, I'm thankful that I have the ink pads, reinkers and cardstock. I don't have Always Artichoke ink, so I used the new Ranger Forest Moss distress ink which is fairly close to Always Artichoke for the leaves which are from the PTI set Friends til the End set. The patterned paper is from October Afternoon's Thirft Store 8x8 pad.
Thanks for taking a peek today and I hope that you will click on the link for ColourQ and check them out. I also need to give a shout out to Arielle for picking my cards for the Colour Queen Courtiers 3 weeks in a row!!! Thanks, Arielle!
