Happy Tuesday, peeps! Time for another ColourQ challenge! Try this one on for size:
Mmmmhmmmm….who wouldn’t want to snuggle into this? Well, maybe my DH, but I sure would! I dug up an old Valentine stamp for my card this week:
I paper-pieced the hearts by stamping gingham images in the challenge colors, then stamping the image on top and cutting them out. The background was watercolored with Lucky Limeade, and I mounted it on a strip of Woodgrain-embossed Calypso Coral. Sentiment is from Delightful Dozen. My niece got married this weekend, a small ceremony, so this will be for her!
And as seems to be the norm for me lately, this is the second card I made, not really liking the first one. Don’t laugh:
I had these little birds already on my desk, so I colored them in with the challenge colors…no problem. The issue started when I mounted them on this way-too-busy BG paper from last year…..just a tad bit overkill. I persevered, though….perhaps someone won’t mind getting it as a Valentine’s card!!!!
I hope you’ll find some sweet inspiration from this delightful floral confection! Check out what the other designers did at the ColourQ blog, too….they’ll make you smile!
Playing with Grammy’s little turtles and birds…lining them up!
