ColourQ125 & CPS153


Happy Tuesday, everyone!  It’s ColourQ time again!  Check out this comfy comforter color inspiration from Arielle:


When I saw this card that Christina had made, using the Card Patterns Sketch 153, the wheels started to turn!  Here’s the sketch:

and here’s my card:


I guess I did a sort of  literal interpretation here!  I chose some floral stamps and did some stamping, embossing and emboss resist techniques, then punched them into 1” squares and mounted them on an embossed and scalloped panel.   I just happened to have some coordinating fabric brads, and since the colors were a bit earthy, I thought it would make an appropriate sympathy card.


If you have any questions about products or techniques, be sure to shoot me an email and I’ll be happy to give you details.  Just make sure you give me an email address contact information.  I can’t wait to see how you interpret these colors!  Be sure to stop on over at the CQC blog and check out what the other designers created, and share your masterpiece as well!
