ColourQ + 2 Sketches By Lucy

Two cards today.  Both cards use sketches provided by Lucy this week during her New Year Sketch Challenge.  The first card I made using the sketch from day 4 of Lucy's challenge and the colors from the current ColourQ challenge:  black, delightful daffodil, so saffron, soft sky & white.  


The second card uses the sketch from day 3 of Lucy's challenge.  I'm going to try to get cards done for days 5, 6 and 7 of Lucy's challenge.  I have really enjoyed her sketches.  They are right up my alley:  clean and simple.   But because they are so very versatile you can "beef" them up with additional layers, etc. if you want.  



When I made card #2 I made the mistake of stamping the frame in the brown ink and the sentiment in yellow ink.  I should have done it the other way around, thus making the sentiment easier to see.   Live and learn!  Stamps are from Stampin Up! and My Favorite Things.

Thanks for taking a peek....

Both beautiful, Rosie! Love that frame on your second card! It looks just fine to me the way it is. Sometimes it's fun to have a lighter shade for the sentiment.

I love both your cards Rosemarie! Those sketches Lucy provided were great. I totally messed up on No.7 though, but I've posted it anyway. (I struggle to stick to any routine, and 7 days in a row of sketches to follow was maybe too much for me - I'm just weird!). Thank goodness though that you are not weird and your cards are superb! I especially love the colours you used, stunning!

These are BOTH, positively radiant, Rosebud! Your use of color and fabulous stamp choices - FABULOUS! I'm with Barb, I think the card looks fine! But my instinct is always with maximum impact! Since my eyes seem to be straining more, I just assume every one else's are, too. {!} Either way, they are both, LOVELY, m'dear! You had some fun, today! Yipeeeeee!
