colourQ #348


Happy Tuesday!
It's time for a new colour palette at the colourQ!



I inked up Concord & 9th's Eat Cake & Celebrate which was one of the first sets I bought from them! I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy (looks almost black doesn't it) and then I stamped and Copic coloured the candles. My white panel and the two die cut elements were popped up with foam tape for dimension--or maybe because I am a bit obsessed with foam tape! Makes a great masculine birthday card. I finished it off by adding some Wink of Stella on the candle flames!


 
I am also submitting to this week's Simon Says Wednesday Challenge Add Some Shimmer



 Hope to see you play along with us again this week!

Love those candles and the sentiment! I may have to break down and go check out the Concord and 9th store... Between these stamps and the ombre inks you might have made this an expensive day for me! ;)
