colourQ Challenge #125

What a beautiful colour palette Arielle selected for this weeks colourQ.  They made me think of spring. I say this when a snow storm is supposed to be coming in tonight dropping more snow than we have seen all winter.  It will probably rain.  lol

This week I went very CAS.  I stamped my white panel first then ran it through the Cuttlebug.  I originally stamped the sentiment with London Fog, but it really seemed to disappear--so back to black.  The flowers were punched then mounted with foam squares on to the coloured cardstock bases.  A grey pearl was added to each square to pull out the grey base.





Cardstock: White, Aqua Mist, Simply Chartreuse, Terracotta Tile (PTI) Grey (Prism)
Stamps:  Birthday Basic (PTI)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Punch: Retro Flower (EK Success)
other: Herringbone embossing folder (Cuttlebug), silver pearls (Basic Grey), foam squares

Pin It

Love this card. It's just my style. And, I've tried twice now to order that herringbone folder, and it's been out of stock. Now, I want it even more. So cool looking. Hope you get the precipitation of your choice.
