Hi everyone! Tuesday brings us another ColourQ challenge, and it’s a beauty:
I don’t think I did this challenge justice; I think Rich Razzleberry just always throws me for a loop! I wanted it to be the focal color but I am never quite sure about using it when all is said and done:
I used watercolor paper to give my images a softer tone, using Hello Darling (one of these days I am going to type “Hello Dolly” by mistake, LOL). Maybe I should have softened the images with a damp paintbrush….but no, I probably would have made a big mess! Instead, I added some Gorgeous Grunge speckles and some Work of Art swooshes to imitate watercoloring! The sentiment from A Dozen Thoughts seemed to fit the mood of this card. And although you can’t see it here, I added a little sparkle with a Jelly Roll pen to my faux sequins:
IRL, it adds just a little shine and shimmer. My Old Olive cardbase was stamped with another floral image from this set, creating a nice monochromatic background. Ooops, almost forgot, the sketch today is from CAS(E) This Sketch #88:
Hope you will stop by the ColourQ blog to see the amazing samples the others have created….be sure to share your creation with us too!
Cassidy requested a Hello Kitty cake for her birthday. Here’s my attempt (cake-decorating is not my forte, although I WISH it was!!):
