Happy Tuesday, stampers!  We got through Monday, and Tuesday means ColourQ time!  Here’s a yummy inspiration photo from Arielle:

Wouldn’t you love to have one of these on your door?  So cute!  I haven’t done anything vintage for a while, and while cleaning out my stamp room, found this little image from my friend Martha, so it seemed perfect to whet my vintage appetite:


The image was stamped on Shimmery White cardstock in Versamark and Early Espresso inks, then embossed with clear embossing powder.  I watercolored my sweet little girl with reinkers, then added some embellishments and a nice big shabby bow! 


I found some older Basic Grey paper from the Stella Ruby line which had the same romantic vintage feeling I was going for, so I used that for my background.  Hope you find LOTS of inspiration from this photo and use it to make something “love”ly!!!  Be sure to check out the ColourQ blog to see what the other courtiers did with these colors, too!



My sister knows that I love vintage children’s games and toys, so it was a happy day when she gave me a little boxed game called Lotto.  It’s sort of like Bingo….and Cassidy liked it too:




Enjoy your day!

This is so precious and vintage, LeAnne! The coloring you did on the image is perfect and the bow is divine. I will find time to play along with the ColourQ this week as I have some ideas brewing already. Just stinks that I am nowhere near my craft room right now! I hope your craft space gets put to rights soon and you have everything in one spot again.

Oh my gosh, LeAnne, I LOVE this! I'm crazy about vintage valentines. The image and greeting are so sweet, and you colored them so beautifully. Great card! Hugs!

Oh my goodness that is such a sweet card. That image is so sweet.
I found a Lotto game too. I is a great one for using in our crafts. That is if you can get it away from that sweet little girls.

So pretty LeAnne. That image is pure innocence! And nobody does a crinkly bow quite like you!

P.S. And Cassidy looks so grown up in this photo. It's amazing how fast kids change!
