ColourQ 211


Hey, peeps!  Today’s ColourQ challenge will crack you up:

Although this table is definitely not my style, it is whimsical and fun!  Perfect inspiration for a funky Halloween card:
LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings ColourQ 211 Digital Halloween

I snagged this free digital image from Alison Spelman quite a while ago and this was the perfect time to use it!  I printed it out and colored it in with Copics and added some SU orange glitter:


I used the sketch from this week’s Retrosketches for my layout:

and I used a piece from an old square dance crinoline to make my little ruffle along the side:


A couple of button embellies and some chevron embossing, and this Halloween card is ready to mail!  I love that it uses non-traditional colors, too!  What can you make with this fun color combo?  Can’t wait to see it---share it with us at the ColourQ blog!

I pinned a cute craft for Cassidy last week and thought she would enjoy it since we had been talking about pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns.  It was just a pumpkin cut from orange felt and some black and yellow shapes that she could stick on the felt to make a face.  She didn’t’ quite get the concept because she hasn’t really made a jack-o-lantern yet!  She did enjoy cutting the felt scraps and lining up the shapes, though!


Oh, and she thought the pumpkin would make a good hat:

Hey Girlfriend, Darling card and image. So spooky sweet! Love Cassidy's hat. I got my internet today. Moved my couch and tables and some cabinets yesterday but my stamp shelves and my bedroom furniture is not moved yet. Today it is raining so not moving anything. Happy stamping. Love that sketch and wish I could stamp but not yet. My stamp area is a mess as I don't have my shelves or table yet. GRRRR!

This card is AMAZING! What a perfect choice for the inspiration photo! Love everything about it! My daughter would love that Halloween project, she just got her own pair of scissors and is obsessed with cutting and shapes, adorable photos! And a great take on this week's sketch :)-Katie

Love all the little elements...tulle, buttons and floss. Then, you topped it off with the perfect stamp! Great job!

Cassidy's pumpkin hat is sweet;) Seriously though, it's great to see her doing her pumpkin craft. Your card is very fun. Good job working with these difficult (at least I think so) colours.I like the crinoline addition.

Eeek! Funky, fun and so adorable! I love the bit of crinoline peeking out and the shredded ribbon!

Cute card! I love that you matched the colors and boots both... and that Cassidy's clothes look like you picked them to match too. ;)
