colourQ #328 and 30 Day Coloring Challenge - Day 8


Happy Tuesday!

The last few days have been fun with hubby home and painting my craftroom. Stage one of the renovation is done. The green that was on the walls when we purchased the house was getting really tiresome. It looked great when we bought the house and they had it set up as a bedroom with a bold red duvet and and cherry wood furniture. When we turned it into my craftroom it went from dramatic to blah. It's amazing what one can of paint can do to a room. Love the new colour, it's brightened the room up so much. Still a lot let to do left to do--the ceiling and closing off the ensuite to change the entry to the hallway for a powder room. In order to do that the entire room has to be emptied--ack! That probably won't happen until the spring or summer.

Time for this week's new colour palette from the colourQ!
Aren't these colours gorgeous?

I did a bit of Copic colouring for Day 8 of of Kathy Racoosin's 30 Day Coloring Challenge at The Daily! My camera wasn't co-operating for the photo, I like in more in real life, the sparkle outline on the flowers in so pretty. The flowers are from Papertrey Ink's Bold Blooms.

  2. Cool and graphic card! Good luck on your room.

  4. Beautiful Copic coloring, Tracey! I love the softness of the diagonal stripes on your background, and your gold sentiment is perfect! Lovely card!
    There's nothing like a fresh coat of paint to brighten a room...can't wait to see your studio when it's finished :)

  5. Emptying a craft room? Ack is right. :D This is such a beautiful card! I look at these colours and go, I think not — but you made them look so pretty together.

  6. Beautiful coloring on those flowers, and I like how they are stamped in gold.

  7. Simply beautiful your gorgeous flowers.

  8. Your flowers are simply gorgeous! They really pop off the front of your card!

  9. Those blooms are just gorgeous, Tracey ... lovely with the delicate background stripes! Just wondering what colour you chose to replace the green in your craft room! Hugs, Anita :)
