colourQ #206

Happy Tuesday and time for this week's new colour palette from the colourQ!




Working with cardstock alone I decided to emboss my design using both dry and heat embossing.  Super talented Kelly Griglione shared a brilliant and creative money saving tip a few weeks ago to emboss cardstock with a piece of actual burlap! Works like a dream and looks fantastic.  Here is her fabulous idea and photo tutorial here.  My flowers are Waltzingmouse new Funky Florals.

I love all your embossing, and you did a great job with a tough collection of colors. I completely forgot that I bought that WMS set, too. I should probably pull it out, right?

I got so behind on my commenting Tracey, missed this great card. We tried out that burlap idea at Stampafaire...such a money-saver. Love your card with all that embossing...makes those flowers really pop! I am going to try to catch up today...I have missed quite a few of your cute cards.
