colourQ #176



Happy Tuesday and time for this week's colourQ!
Arielle put together another amazing palette of colours and isn't that sleeping bag adorable?




We have all had an occasion where we have overcooked a card when embossing.  I actually did  on the second embossing of my card but instead of starting over I was actually happy with the way it looked.  The centre of the flower looks kind of fluffy now.  What do you think?  If you want to learn how I did my double embossing here is a link to a video posted recently at Papertrey Ink.




We hope that you come a play with us this week at the colourQ and while you are there make sure to visit the blogs of the rest of the Design Team to see their fabulous creations.

Wow! The colors this week are amazing! I think you did a great job on the embossing. I love the way it looks. Isn't it so hard to emboss on white and sometimes over cook the paper where it turns brown? I have done that from time to time. LOL!

Now there is reason #999 why I don't love embossing powder....just too finicky! Great use of the inspiration colours!

This is so pretty. Every time I see that big medallion, I swoon just a little bit. And, love that cool embossing on your funky flowers.
