colourQ challenge #140

The house is back to normal (well our normal) after our 5 billets from Wales last week returned home.  I will say that it was not near as chaotic as you might think, a delightful group of kids with manners that would make their mother's proud.  After their departure we kicked the gardening into high gear, I think I am a very good foreman directing my husband where he needed to plant and transplant.  LOL

This week's colourQ colours are really gorgeous.  I see myself using this colour scheme again and again.  I don't have any Stampin' Up colours but I find that my PTI colours are usually a close match.   I used Ocean Tides and Hawaiian Shores instead of Island Indigo and Tempting Tourquoise.   At first I wasn't sure how these two blues could work together but they actually blended quite well.  I made a wedding card to get ahead for this years round of weddings.

I started with a card base of Hawaiian Shores which I matted with a patterned paper from PTI's Beautiful Blooms.  This paper pack features the colours Hawaiian Shores, Pure Poppy and Simply Chartreuse.  My centre white panel was embossed using PTI Simply Stripes Impression Plate.  I matted a quote stamped in Ocean Tides from Love & Marriage with Pure Poppy and created a felt blossom using Ocean Tides felt accented with leaves from Sending You in Simply Chartreuse.  Hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend.

So, so, so beautiful. I would have never paired that patterned paper and that stamp set together, ever and you make it look like they were made to go together. You sure have a way with colors, this is so fabulous and amazing. I will be making one of these, just like yours. Thanks for the inspiration.
