ColourQ189

DSCF4786-002

Wheeee!  Happy Tuesday, peeps!  Are you ready for a windy inspiration photo for today’s ColourQ challenge?

Isn’t this a cool kite?  I am not too good at kite-flying, but I sure would like to give this one a try!  I felt the bold graphics in this image were a great segue to sneak-peek the upcoming Mosaic Madness set that will be in the new catalog:

LeAnne-CQC189

I wish this photo did this card justice….it’s really vibrant and bold IRL!  I also used the Sketch Frenzy Friday sketch from this week, which is a great basic sketch, simple enough to carry these elements:

I started by embossing my white panel with the new Modern Mosaic EF, then using my stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the images on the embossing.  The new mosaic punch makes it a snap to punch out the larger images….the smaller Calypso Coral ones I cut out with my snips:

I added some strategically-placed rhinestones and a cute little sentiment stamped on top of one of the borders that comes with the set:

My mind is spinning with more ideas with this set!  Meanwhile, I hope your mind is spinning with ideas on how to use these cool colors together, and I hope you’ll share them with us at the ColourQ blog!  As usual, the courtiers have stamped some marvelous projects, and be sure to check out our new member, Melissa!

A rite of spring:
