ColourQ 201


Happy Tuesday, everyone!  Arielle has a lovely color block inspiration photo today:

I should call this post the five-minute card vs. the five-hour card.  I made two cards using these colors, and one came together quickly, the other….well, I just couldn’t decide what to do with it!  Anyway, here’s the five-minute (well, it took a little longer than that!) card; I needed a sympathy card for a church friend and the colors seemed appropriate:

LeAnne Pugliese CQC201 Blessings from Heaven-2

Since the apron in the inspiration photo has graphic lines, I chose a similar style of pattern, merely embossing the different panels and adding a sentiment from Blessings from Heaven.  Although it’s difficult to see, the Soft Sky panel is embossed with the Stripes EF.  The pearls and butterfly add a little softness.

The other card uses a couple retired SU sets and a computer-generated sentiment:

LeAnne Pugliese CQC201 Seashell Birthday

I stamped the images second-generation, then cut them out and popped them up on a panels stamped in matching inks with the background stamp from French Foliage.  Pretty self-explanatory:


So…how does this color palette inspire you?  I can’t wait to see what you come up with!  Share it at the ColourQ blog and see what everyone else has created as well!

Love the colors for theses cards, especially the shell card. Of course, Little Miss Camera Shy (not!) is always a treat!

Great cards - so different! Love the bold, graphic blocks of colour and texture on the sympathy card. And the sea theme on your second card is just lovely!
