I made a card yesterday using the current ColourQ combo of Soft Suede, Night of Navy, Pacific Point & Marine Mist but I wasn't really happy with how the card turned out. It's not a bad card, just felt I could do a better job. As I was putting away things last night I glanced at the SU! set Fifth Avenue Floral and a new card was born. Had to wait until this morning to make it though and to figure out if I had a color of ink that was a close match to Marine Mist. Happy to say that I do! Hero Arts' Cerulean Blue chalk ink is a really good match, YAY!! I stamped the large rose image using the Cerulean and Palette's Starry Night, a pretty good match for Night of Navy. The sentiment was stamped using Ranger's Brushed Corduroy, which is also a pretty good match for Soft Suede. Finished the card off with some Pacific Point ribbon. I had originally stamped the sentiment using Pacific Point ink (the one and only SU! color from the combo I actually own!), but I didn't like it as well as when I stamped it with the Brushed Corduroy.
Thanks for taking a peek... have a wonderful day and if you have never checked out ColourQ, you really should!
