Woohoo, happy Tuesday everyone! I always look forward to Arielle’s challenges; she knows where to go for all the trendy stuff….good thing, because “trendy” would not be a word someone would use to describe me! But I can be trendy in my crafting! What do you think of this:
This reminds me of a needlepoint purse I made many, many years ago! Now when I am faced with color combinations like this, I usually revert back to my old standard “four-part harmony” sketch:
I used some fun embossing folders (Square Lattice, Houndstooth, Fancy Fan and Chevron) for three of the colors, punched them out with a 1” square punch and mounted them on a matching punchout from the Postage Stamp punch, popping them up and embellishing them each with a little doodad:
Oooh, that was the fun part! I colored the pearl with a Copic, and the Summer Starfruit Dahlia matches that Crushed Curry square pretty closely! Then I added a little sentiment from Touch of Kindness (ret) and some ruffled ribbon, both in Island Indigo:
This could be a note card or a birthday card, or a get-well card! Hope you are inspired to play along with us this week---share your creation over at the ColourQ blog, and be prepared to be “wowed” by all the DT samples!
