ColourQ 106


Oh my, my, my…..what a color challenge little miss Arielle has for us today!!!  Let’s get to it:


Well, this little backpack is the cutest….but I did NOT want to go with a bee theme, and I was challenged, to say the least.  This was my THIRD attempt using these colors:


I finally went very clean and simple, using a couple sets that nicely coordinated with each other!  Of course, stamping after midnight is a challenge too!  Anyway, here’s a little closer look:


The wreath is stamped in Basic Gray with the berries in Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango; Autumn is in Basic Black and the sentiment below in gray.  I had some gray seam binding that I tied into a simple bow and added a button---done!  Hope you can drum up some creative rhythm and make something fabulous with these colors, then share it with us at the CQC blog!  And while you’re there, check out what the other designers have done---there are some CUTE things there!  TFL!


Wee Details:

  • Stamps:  Wreath for All Seasons, PTI; Fall set from Impression Obsession
  • Paper:  WW, Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry
  • Ink:  Basic Gray, Stazon Black, Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango
  • Acc:  Seam Binding, Brights Button, floss

  7. Did you draw your inspiration from that gorgeous tree changing it's colors by Cassidy? Love the berries on the wreath and Cassidy's reach for the leaves.

  8. Simple and beautiful! And Cassidy has a simple request as well - just a bit of splashing in that water would be mighty nice!
