Hi everyone! Yay, it’s Tuesday, and all the snow we got yesterday is quickly melting away. It took me a minute to figure out what that funny noise was….it was melting snow coming down the rain gutters!
Arielle has a pretty color inspiration for us today, but I have to admit it was a wee bit challenging for me. Sometimes I will re-do my card, but I left this one as it was this time. I had other things to stamp, LOL! Here you go:
And here’s my card:
I punched out butterflies from each of the challenge colors (I used Gumball Green instead of Lucky Limeade) and mounted them on a Naturals White panel. I thought about stamping big dots behind the butterflies to mimic the pillow in the inspiration photo, but I figured for sure I would mess it up, so I just used the butterflies. I loosely used the sketch from RetroSketches this week:
turning it on its side so I could fit all the butterflies in! I used the polymer set, Another Thank You, in Basic Gray for my sentiment, and I used one of the little dies from Chalk Talk to cut a hole for my ribbon:
It looks a wee bit nicer than just a slit! I added pearls on the ribbon and butterflies, and it was done!
The ColourQ courtiers have created some fabulous things using these colors; it always amazes me how unique each and every one is! Be sure to check them out and play along with us as well!
