colourQ #90

Happy Tuesday and welcome back for another colourQ challenge! This week’s set of colors will get you into the “swim” of crafting! I’m blogging from the road again this week…It’s nice to travel for a while, but I miss my usual crafting time!

I made this card before I left home…I really thought about how I wanted to work in all the colors, and after several attempts that I didn’t like as much, I came up with this…I’m really happy with it:

Other supplies: stamp set (My Mind’s Eye, Stella & Rose collection), sentiment stamp (Technique Tuesday), embossing folder (Sizzix), border punch (Fiskars), patterned paper (My Mind’s Eye Lime Twist collection – Out of the Blue mini pad)

I made the patterned paper by stamping the doilies with Brilliant Blue ink on Bashful Blue-ish cardstock. To work in the white and turquoise, I embossed a strip of cardstock and added border punched strips to the top and bottom. I matted the sentiment on some poppy-ish paper and glued on some pearls to the bottom to balance out the design.

Thanks for stopping by!
