ColourQ49....

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!
