Between sniffles & sneezes, I actually got to participate in the ColourQ this week. Look at this fancy inspiration:
As a child, my grandmother had some peacock feathers and I was fascinated by the iridescent colors!! What a sweet reminder of her! Since my mojo has been replaced by a cold, I chose to make a very simple card using an idea I saw at the Baltimore Regionals; unfortunately, I cannot remember the talented demo who used the tree from Lovely as a Tree as a branch:
The tree was stamped in Wild Wasabi, and I used a marker to color over the “stem”. Since I already had my embossing supplies out for the Paper Players challenge, I embossed the ornaments from Tree Trimmings in silver EP, then colored them with markers. My Stamp-a-ma-jig made it really easy to position the ornaments and their strings! I added some “sparkle” not only with the sentiment, but also with some Dazzling Diamonds glitter on the branches. It’s backed with a panel of Pacific Point; here’s the inside:
This also qualifies for the City Crafter Challenge 33, which is “Blue Christmas”. Thanks for visiting today---be sure to check out the CQC blog to see what the others came up with using these colors---and you play along too!
