ColourQ 108 and MOJO 212

Friday, October 28, 2011

The ColourQ color challenge this week seemed to suggest Halloween, but I wanted to go into a different direction.

I actually wanted to break out some of my Halloween stamps, but I resisted because I thought it would be a little more interesting to try something different.  And this week the MOJO sketch was perfect for what I had in mind.

I envisioned something with a lot of white space so that the So Saffron, Daffodil Delight and Peach Parfait would stand out.  And I always think that a bit of Basic Black adds a perfect contrast, so I added that with the brads, the twine and the scalloped layer.  I used only a touch of designer paper from Beyond the Garden.  The rest are layers of the other colors in the challenge.  (The yellows look awfully similar in the photo, but I did use both of them here)!  The sentiment is from Pretty Postage and the flowers are from a Verve set called Kind Words.

Thanks for stopping by today!
