ColourQ128, CCMC192

DSCF8026

Happy Tuesday to you!  It’s another ColourQ day!  Check out this cool geometric creation:

cqc128

I have to admit, although I love this pillow, and I love green, this challenge stumped me a bit!  I don’t normally send out St Patrick’s Day cards, but these greens just sent me in that direction!  So, I used the sketch from Create with Connie & Mary  for this week:

to create my CAS card:

CQC128-LeAnne

The card base is textured Very Vanilla, and my little leprechaun is from the Gift Givers set that was in the Holiday Mini….such a great versatile set, I am hoping they put it in the upcoming catalog!  I did some watercoloring (added some blue, hope that’s okay, Arielle!) and then popped him up:

You can’t tell here, but his little gold coins were colored with a Zig Painty pen, so they are really gold!  I also added a stitched shamrock, using three hearts punched from the Triple Heart punch:

I am just not too sure the shamrock style matches my leprehaun’s outline style, but it’s done and over!  But would it surprise you to know that I stamped another card before this one and I was not real happy it either?  Here we go:

I think I would have preferred a white background….but it is good to step out of your creative box, right?  That’s it for today!  I hope you can come up with a creative way to use these colors and share them with us over at the ColourQ….and while you’re there, check out what the other designers have come up with as well!

I always enjoy seeing your sweet litle granddaughter! Such a cutie pie!!

The cards are just lovely also!!

Wondering how you made the flag tail on the card with the trees. I just cannot figure out how you made the extra little reverse notch in the center..hope you understand what I mean by my description!

Happy St Patty's Day!!
