colourQ #178



Happy Tuesday and time for this week's colourQ palette.
It is definitely spring to me.




If I haven't told you already I just LOVE the Papertrey Ink Fancy Folk Art stamp set.
Yes I have been using it a lot lately but I keep trying new ways to use it.

This week for my card I stamped the stem and then stamped the flowers and coloured them in with Copic markers then adhered them with a bit of dimension.  The difference between Copic B41 and B45 was not dramatic so by going back over the areas coloured with B45 a second time it gave the colour more depth.




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.

All supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.

Cardstock:  Spring Rain, White

Patterned Paper: Enchanted Evening Patterned Paper Pack
Stamps: Fancy Folk Art
Ink:  Enchanted Evening, Limeade Ice, True Black
other: foam tape, Copics (B41, B91, B45)
