Colour Q Challenge 31


Hey, everybody, happy Tuesday!  Check out what Arielle has chosen for the ColourQ’s  cool color combo for today:


I was antsy to play with one of the sets from the new mini, July Fourth…..hmmm, these colors don’t exactly look like the 4th of July, do they?  Well, what do you think:


Stars are good ANY time, right?  And I thought they would be great in these colors for a Father’s Day card.  I saw this cool card on Regina’s blog and went to work to adapt it to Arielle’s colors and my theme!  It’s pretty simple…I used a bunch of brads—not hoarding these!—and my star punch to pop these out real quick!  The most difficult part was using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes!  Here’s a view of the card closed:


and you can see the inside view here:


Now, I have to tell you, this was not my first card.  I did another one, but really thought it was a bit too busy.  I will definitely use it for a boy’s birthday, but I just wasn’t real happy with it:


The robots are from a My Cute Stamps set; the “gears” are just circles with little bits punched from the edges; and the background was made by inking up some bubble wrap and pressing on the Crushed Curry cardstock.  The spiral stamp was a blog candy from Kelley; it is from Practicing Creativity.  And THEN I really got on a roll; I made even another one, this time really CAS:


This is probably my favorite! LOL!  Beautiful Wings embosslit and a sentiment from Flight of the Butterfly!  Can’t get any simpler than that!

Be sure to check out all the other designers and what they have come up with using this fresh color palette…you can click on the blinkie at the right and it will take you right to ColourQ!  And we want you to play too!  You might just be chosen the QUEEN!!!  Have a wonderful day!
