ColourQ (#47), one of my favorite color challenges. I haven't played along the last few weeks for various reasons. The major one being I didn't have any of the new SU! colors. I used the sketch from a challenge blog that I have yet to have a chance to participate in: Pals Paper Arts, PPA57. It was just what I need to finally get my card put together since I was really stumped as to how to use the striking color combo (Poppy Parade, More Mustard, Basic Grey & Bermuda Bay) put forth by Arielle (actually, that happens to me alot!). For this card I used a new SU! set called Just Believe.Today, I'm still on my simplicity kick. This time with color, though. Again, I have two cards for two different color challenges, but both using several colors in common. The first card is for
My second card is also for a color challenge called Color Cue put forth by the very talented Dawn of WPlus9Design Studio. Her colors this month: Gold, Red, Aqua & White/Cream. Now SU!'s Bermuda Bay could be taken for an aqua color, but because it tends more toward the green end, I went with SU!'s Tempting Turquoise because when I think "aqua" I think more of a blue color. I also used Dawn's fantastic stamp set Woodgrain Silhouettes, one of my most favorite sets, and the current sketch from Clean & Simple, FTL105. I probably should have stamped the leaf image a bit more off the cardstock to give it better balance.... Well, live and learn.
So, thanks for taking a peek... I hope you have a wonderful day!
