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:
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:
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!
