It’s Tuesday, and that means it’s ColourQ!  Today Arielle has given us this sweet little dress as our inspiration:


I used the Card Patterns Sketch 75:

and pulled out several sets to make my interpretation of this colorful fabric, and I even went “green”:


What’s green, you ask?  The polka-dotted panel is a piece of cardstock from a Christmas card I received last year.  It was so cute, I saved it and while looking through my stash, I thought it would be fun to use it on this card.  The So Saffron card base was stamped with the Houndstooth backgrounder from CHF; the Pure Poppy panel was stamped with the vine from Vintage Vogue, and the main panel was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with Black Detail embossing powder, then colored with Bashful Blue ink.  I distressed the edges, added some sweet little eyelet and a big ole’ flower from SU.  The foam flower is from Hero Arts and the Antique brad is from SU.  The little “hello” is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and it attached with a little library clip.  Lots of interesting things going on here… let’s see what you can do with these colors.  Hop on over to the ColourQ blog to see what the other designers have whipped up and play with us too!!!  Can’t wait to see your creations!
