colourQ #73

Hi! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend, especially if it was a holiday weekend for you!

We’ve been pretty lucky this weekend to have beautiful weather and sunshine…a nice chance from the gloominess and rain that we’ve been having for what seems like forever!

I had fun with this week’s set of challenge colors for colourQ #73! It’s amazing to look back on a finished card and realize it’s not what you expected when you first came up with the idea…it’s even better!

I had an idea for a more fun and cute way to use these colors, but I decided to go with something more elegant, and I’m happy with how it came out!

Here are the colors for this week:

And here’s my card! This one is for some friends of ours who are getting married next month, and the theme of the wedding includes peacock feathers.

Other supplies: ink (Brilliant Blue – Stampin’ Up!, Graphite Black – Tsukineko), cardstock (Stampin’ Up!), die-cut circle (Spellbinders), glitter brads.
I used the feather stamp to create the background, and masked a retired peacock stamp from Stampin’ Up! for the main image. I colored the hearts with a Rich Razzleberry marker and added Glossy Accents to each. The sentiment is from SU’s Occasional Quotes set, and the embossing folder is also an SU exclusive.
Hope you’ve been inspired to do something fun with this week’s set of challenge colors!
Thanks for stopping by!
