ColourQ 43

cqc43

Each week, Arielle amazes me with the inspiration pieces she comes up with for the ColourQ.  This week, I was amazed AND stumped!  The colors are awesome but I just was not sure how to translate them into a card!  I had no Peach Parfait ink, only paper, and no DP remotely resembling this gorgeous bargello-style design.  So I dug out some retired Bermuda Bay DP and a Nestie Blossom diecut and went to work:

I did manage to get a little zig-zaggy design in there from the Pinking Hearts border punch!!!  The Square Lattice embossed background gave it a bit of texture.  And how about that cool brad in the center of the flower---SU’s new Antique Brads…..SO cool!  I just love them and want to HOARD them!

I added a little chocolate pearl to the center, as well as to my swirls, just for  a little fun!  The sentiment from Cornish Heritage Farms, stamped on a Nesties Tag diecut, is one of my favorites. 

So hop on over to the ColourQ to see what the Royal Court has designed today!  You’ll want to play along too when you see the tempting creations they have! And thanks for visiting today!!

  3. This is stunning! I love the EF and that flower with the new brad. Wait until you see the card I made for next weeks SPCC. I just want you to know I made it yesterday and didn't see this first. It is different but I think I have looked at so many of your cards I am starting to think like you. Yea for lucky me! Now it I could get them to turn out at good then I would be doing something.
