ColourQ166

DSCF1323
Happy Tuesday, everyone!  Arielle has a gorgeous BLUE inspiration photo for the ColourQ challenge today:
I love, love, love blue, and I love music, but for the life of me, I couldn’t get the two to merge today!  So I went with another look, a starburst (thanks to Denise for giving me some directions!) and a big, honking, glittery snowflake:

After creating my starburst, I ran it through a snowflake embossing folder, then stamped my snowflake from The Snowflake Spot (ret)  in Pacific Point and versamark ink, embossed it with Heat & Stick powder, then finished it with some MS glitter—that stuff is gorgeous!

I added a smaller circle to the back so that it would show up a bit better, and heat-embossed a sentiment from Winter Memories in white craft ink and white embossing powder:

A couple of glimmer brads a some silver glimmer paper finished it off!  I can’t wait to see what you come up with using these beautiful monochromatic shades!  This also qualifies for the Hand Stamped Sentiment challenge 147, which is monochromatic!  Be sure to check out the ColourQ blog to see ALL the amazing creations this week!  
Anybody for a pickle?

  1. This is stunning, LeAnne!! I love the starburst, great take on the inspiration photo. And the blues are well done! Hope to find time to play this week as I think the challenge would be perfect for a b-day card for my dad.

  20. Hi LeAnne! Love your card, it's bold and delicate at the same time. I am dying to try the sunburst technique, it's really pretty, and your big glittered star is so icy. That little pickle pic is so sweet too! Thanks for playing at HSS :) Erika
