live in the moment...

Hello friends.... its summer time and the cardmaking is sporadic, lol!!  Lately I have not really been in the mood to make anything which is really unusual for me.  I tried making something the other day and just had to give up.  So with the arrival today of lots of brand new Hero Arts stamps via FedEx I thought I would try making something and came up with this card for the current Colour Q challenge:

 

Stamps are from the following Hero Arts sets:  My Notebook and All the Time.  I decided to keep it simple and just use this sort of brushstroke image from the set and stamp it using all the ColourQ colors.  I subbed in Memento's Rhubarb Stalk, Hero Arts Soft Pool and PTI's Simply Chartreuse for the Bermuda Bay, Raspberry Ripple and Lucky Limeade colors.  Soft Pool is a little bluer than Bermuda Bay, but I think it does the job fairly well.  The sentiment was stamped using black ink and I added a few rhinestones to finish things off.  Not super creative, but I like it just the same.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps:  Hero Arts; Inks:  PTI, Hero Arts and Memento; Rhinestones:  Stampin Up!
